A west Fayetteville restaurant has closed its doors for good.

Flying Burger & Seafood officials last week announced that they have permanently closed their Fayetteville location at 4280 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. due to the pandemic.

From the announcement:

We have permanently closed our location due to COVID-19. Our prayers will continue for our local community and other local businesses. Thank you to all of the customers that have supported us through this difficult time.

The restaurant opened the Fayetteville location back in July of 2020. Their menu focuses on burgers, catfish dishes, po-boy sandwiches, boiled seafood, and other items.

The restaurant got its start in Magnolia, Arkansas, and began franchising in 2019. According to the company’s website, there are still nine locations in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana.
