An EaDo burger joint, Burgr Hous, has already closed just shy of hitting its two month mark in business.
The eatery at 801 St. Emanuel Street opened on June 7, but was locked out of the building last week by its landlord due to an alleged failure to pay rent. According to photos posted on popular Houston real estate forum HAIF, a notice left on Burgr Hous’ door states that the eatery had been locked out by the landlord out for failing to pay. “For lease” signs were also posted on the front of the building.
Burgr Hous owner Brian Jordan is a former civil engineer who told KHOU 11 shortly after opening that he left his career after 22 years because he was tired of it, and had no restaurant experience aside from eating in “thousands” of restaurants but decided to give restaurant ownership a try.
Eater has reached out to both parties for comment and will update this post when we hear back.
