These eateries shuttered as a result of changing market conditions, rapid expansion, and even a hepatitis outbreak.

It is obvious that Tex-Mex is a cuisine that is here to stay thanks to well-known restaurant chains like Chipotle, Moe's Southwest Grill, Qdoba, Taco Bell, Baja Fresh, Chuy's, and Del Taco.

While several Tex-Mex chains have had recent success, some haven't been as fortunate. Here are four Tex-Mex eateries that were formerly well-known but have since closed their doors.

1. Chi-Chi's

When you hear more about this restaurant, it might not be surprise that Chi-is Chi's no longer operating. This chain was started in Minnesota in the 1970s by Marno McDermott, who had previously started a fast-food chain known as Zapata Foods.

2. Don Pablo's

Another chain restaurant with a Mexican theme, Don Pablo's, had a successful run for a while before having to close.

3. Pup 'N' Taco

Pup 'N' Taco's concept for a fast-food restaurant franchise was undoubtedly distinctive because it combined customers' favorite tacos with burgers, hot dogs, and different meals.

4. Casa Bonita

In the past, Denver, Colorado-based Tex-Mex chain restaurant Casa Bonita was a profitable business. However, this chain was well-known for being more than just a restaurant. Customers might take use of attractions like an indoor waterfall in addition to tasty food.
