A popular Jones County Mexican restaurant has announced that it will be closing its doors for good later this month.

According to the restaurant's Facebook page, La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant in Anamosa is no longer able to stay open, The post states that despite trying to attract more employees and waiting for the economy to improve, the restaurant located at 1304 East 3rd Street in Anamosa will be shuttering operations later this month.

The restaurant industry continues to face uphill battles in both employee shortages and prices skyrocketing due to inflation. The post stated that the restaurant didn't want to keep having to raise prices just to keep the doors open. The restaurant's last day of business will be on September 30th.

However, the post does remind patrons that the La Hacienda location in Monticello will remain open for business, as will the restaurant's food truck. That truck will be open and operating during Anamosa's Pumpkifest Celebration on Saturday, October 1st,
