Longstanding Downtown restaurant Spaghetti Warehouse is definitely not leaving Houston, despite rumors on social media that insisted that the restaurant was permanently closed.

Spaghetti Warehouse’s location at 901 Commerce saw “significant damage,” but the chain has no plans to permanently close its Houston restaurant, reports the Houston Chronicle. According to a representative for the restaurant, the post-Hurricane Harvey flood waters reached the top of the first floor, which could mean that Spaghetti Warehouse might be forced to look for a new location.

A screenshot of Spaghetti Warehouse’s flooded building in Downtown, accompanied by the “news” that the restaurant was closing, was posted to Facebook yesterday. Since, it’s racked up more than 6,000 reposts and thousands of comments, most of which mourn the loss of this spot for all-you-can-eat spaghetti.

Spaghetti Warehouse has not announced a timeline for its return to Houston, but rest assured — that lasagna isn’t going anywhere.
