Historic Restaurant to Close After Decades of Serving West Texas


BUFFALO GAP, TX – One of the most legendary and oldest restaurants in the Big Country announced Monday that they will be closing their doors after decades of service.

"It is with a heavy heart that we have come to a decision to close the restaurant," stated the Deutschalnder management in a public statement.

Deutschalnder Freshwater Catfish company has been around for decades. After a fire in the 1970s, the restaurant had to rebuild and has been at 502 Houston St. since. Although the restaurant has always been a hit, Deutschalnders has seen a number of other issues arise.

"With inflation, supply shortages, and the inability to find employees we are forced to close," continued the statement. "Our last day of business will be Sunday, December 19th."

Although this may seem like the end for the Catfish farm, the statement did give insight on what is yet to come.

"We will use this time to update the building and our kitchen to better suit the community," stated Deutschalnder management. "We look forward to seeing you all again upon reopening."
