Bagby Park Burger Joint Shutters

The restaurant announced its closure today

After opening its doors in 2015, Bagby Park burger joint Rico’s Morning Noon Night has officially called it quits.

The restaurant announced its closure on Facebook today, but didn’t give a reason behind the shutter. When it debuted, Houston Chronicle restaurant critic Alison Cook praised the food stand’s fries and shakes, but was less sold on its burgers. In the years following, though, Rico’s hot dogs and tacos became a popular dining spot for park visitors.

No word yet on what will become of the stand, or whether or not Rico’s owners have plans to take the restaurant to a new location. It does, however, appear that the shutter came suddenly, as the restaurant was just touting its placement on Houstonia Magazine’s list of the city’s best hot dogs less than a week ago.

Eater has reached out to the owners of Rico’s Morning Noon Night for more details. Stay tuned for an update.

Thank You Houston! We had a great time serving you our awesome Burgers, Dogs, Fries and Tacos. Rico’s in Bagby Park is closed. Thank You for your business!
