According to a post on social media, popular local restaurant The Bacon Tree is closing its doors. In a Facebook post Tuesday afternoon, it was said The Bacon Tree “as you know it” will no longer be open.

We're all kind of hoping that it means the owners are doing some planning and re-branding and possibly re-opening in the future. I know I personally will miss the dickens out of this place. My wife and I always enjoy our rides down for their delicious Bacon Tree hash, or the sublimely decadent Bacon Tree Benedict.

I know they say all good things must eventually end, but this one literally hits me right in the tummy. We'll sure miss you Bacon Tree.

If you didn't know how the restaurant got its name, here's the story.
