BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A Mexican restaurant near LSU’s campus on Lee Drive will be closing its doors on Oct. 23 after 10 years in business.

In a statement, the Caliente Mexican Craving’s owners said the decision to shut down the Lee Drive location was due to several reasons. The restaurant’s lease was due for renewal in May but the owners decided that they want to own the building any of their businesses are in. Another reason for closing is to focus growing menu concepts for their ghost kitchen.

The ghost kitchen offers take-out and catering — an aspect of the restaurant the owners said has grown in the last five years. The owners reassure customers that Caliente Mexican Craving Catering and Rouge La La Catering will continue operating.

“It was a difficult decision or us to make,” the owners said in a statement online. “We have had much success at this location, and we know we could have continued to be successful for another 10 years. This is truly bittersweet for us. We have gotten to know so many of our customers personally. However, we are excited for this next business venture and chapter in our lives.”

Caliente Mexican Craving’s Central location on Wax Road remains open.
