A group of burger bars on the South Shore has gotten a little smaller--for now, at least--as its closest location to Boston has shut down.
A source told us a week ago that KKatie's Burger Bar in Quincy Center was going to be closing, with a thread from the Quincy Is Everything Facebook group confirming that it has indeed shuttered and that a sign out front at the Hancock Street spot refers customers to its locations in Marshfield, Plymouth, and Hyannis. The note also mentions that the restaurant plans to move "nearby," though it is not known whether it might reopen in Quincy or in another community in the immediate area.
The Quincy location of Kkatie's first opened in December of 2016, moving into a space within the West of Chestnut luxury apartment complex.
The address for the now-closed Kkatie's in Quincy Center was 1440 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA, 02169. The website for the existing locations can be found at http://www.kkaties.com/
