Tyler, Texas (KETK) —
According to the Gilbert's El Charro Facebook page, the Tyler landmark has announced it is closing its doors.
The following statement was posted on the El Charro Facebook:
"After 69.5 years and 3 days El Charro is officially closed. Thanks to all of East Texas for for dining with us throughout the years."
Known for their food and margartitas, El Charro, which has been open since 1943, will close not one, but both locations.
El Charro #1 at 2604 East Erwin, has been closed recently due to repairs but will not re-open. The second location at 2623 East 5th Street, will also not be serving "Tylerites" anymore.
