MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The Texas Steakhouse & Saloon at 927 Foxcroft Ave. has closed, the restaurant’s general manager confirmed Wednesday.
“Saturday was our last day of business,” Andrew Mason said at the restaurant.
Signs posted at the doors thank patrons for their loyalty to the company, “but unfortunately with the hard economy we have been forced to close this location.”
Mason said the 40 to 50 full- and part-time staff who worked at the restaurant received little notice of the location’s closure.
“None of us knew,” Mason said.
The notice posted on the doors advises patrons to travel to the restaurant chain’s Winchester, Va., location, where they can redeem coupons that were left in a metal bucket outside the entrance to the Martinsburg restaurant.
Mason said the closure was simply due to a lack of sales at the Martinsburg location and had nothing to do with a health department inspection or other reason. The restaurant opened in early 2004, according to Martinsburg Planning Department records.
