La Paz has closed its doors after more than three decades in business.

Wednesday night was the midtown restaurant’s last night. It’s unclear why the family-run Tex-Mex restaurant closed.

“It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that tonight will be our last night here in Charlotte. Thank you for 36 years here. We love each and every one of you who have come through our doors and enjoyed what we could provide,” the restaurant said in a Facebook post.

The cantina opened in 1979 in a house off Providence Road and Fenton Place, according to its website. It moved to its next spot on South Boulevard, across from Sullivan’s, in the 1990s, and in 2007 was bought by the Manning family, who moved it to its most recent spot in the Metropolitan shopping center in 2012.

It’s also not yet clear what will go in the La Paz space, which is next to Hickory Tavern in the Metropolitan.
