Labor, food and rising fuel costs have forced the closure of a popular Mexican restaurant in Atlantic City.

Los Amigos announced plans to close its doors in this Facebook post last week.

The restaurant had been in business for 46 years. 

Los Amigos, located at 1926 Atlantic Ave., originally opened in West Berlin in 1976, before moving to Atlantic City two years later.

“We are sorry to say Los Amigos will be closing its doors until further notice due to the poor labor market, exorbitant food costs, and fuel and energy costs,” the Facebook post said. “We would like to thank all our customers & past employees that have supported us since we opened in 1979.”

The post received more than 1,200 likes, as well as 800 shares and comments.

Marla Nauman Uzanas wrote, "Awww, so sorry to hear this sad news...Los Amigos is an Atlantic City Landmark !! Great food and service, you'll Be missed." 

Ron Cluff added: "I’m so sorry. This is a huge loss to the local vegan community. Good luck in the future!"

And Janet Williams, a former employee, said, "I am proud to say I worked at Los Amigos. The owners were great employers and customer service and quality was their main focus. Best of luck in the future."
