LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A longtime favorite Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas will be closing its doors, for now, according to reports.

Macayo's announced today on its social media pages that its location at 8245 W. Sahara Ave. will be closing in March along with its 741 E. Charleston Ave. site at a later date.

The eatery has been doing business in Las Vegas for almost 60 years and has been a favorite by many locals.

Guest Todd Thompson wrote: I have been going to Macayo's my whole life (since 1961), as a matter of fact, I was almost born there. My mom went into labor just after leaving the restaurant. I guess you could say I've had the smooth salsa in my blood since birth! Really going to miss it.

Another customer LaJan Wortham wrote: Been eating at the location on E Charleston since 1950’s and the one on west Sahara since it opened. Had many Birthday and Anniversary parties there over the years. Get gift cards for family members every Christmas.

Monday's post thanked customers for allowing the restaurant to serve them for the last 59 years and that, unfortunately, the West Sahara restaurant will be closing as on March 10.

Comments on the restaurant's page also revealed that the East Charleston location would also be closing its doors.

Customer Jolene White Cyn wrote: Temporarily, it’s going also 😢

However, a follow-up comment stated the restaurant does plan to reopen in a different Las Vegas spot.

In the meantime, patrons were asked to join the celebration of the restaurants long history of serving the valley.
