Hacienda on Henderson Has Closed

Hacienda on Henderson, a staple on Henderson Avenue for five years, shuttered over the weekend. CultureMap broke the story.

When Hacienda opened across the street from Capitol Pub in 2009, our food critic at the time noted it had mediocre food, bad service and a great, but very empty patio. He gave them a small window of time to get things right.

Either they did, or we were wrong, because Hacienda became the go-to Tex-Mex joint on Henderson Ave., and the restaurant lasted almost five years thanks to good happy hour specials and a vegan menu.

The sources in our brain say it will be replaced by an upscale burger restaurant.
