A chain of Tex-Mex restaurants continues to close outlets in the local area, with a longtime location in the northern suburbs being the latest to shut down.
According to a source, Chili's in Burlington shuttered over the past day or two and that furniture was being removed from the Middlesex Turnpike space, with a check on the company's website indicates that the place has indeed been removed from its locations section. There had been much chatter about the Burlington location closing, though it was not known when (or even if) it might shut its doors until now. This is one of a handful of Chili's to close locally over the past several years, including outlets in Dedham, Hingham, and Wilmington, with others in Boston, Brockton, and Framingham also closing over the past decade or so. As of now, only five remaining locations of the chain can be found inside (or near) Route 128, including in Braintree, Chelsea, Danvers, Reading, and Walpole.
The Burlington location of Chili's had been in business for more than 30 years.
The address for this now-closed Tex-Mex restaurant in Burlington was: Chili's, 108 Middlesex Turnpike, Burlington, MA, 01803. The website for the chain can be found at https://www.chilis.com/.
