A Boston-based group of deep-dish pizza spots continues to shrink, with one of its suburban locations now getting ready to close.
According to a source, Uno Pizzeria and Grill at the Burlington Mall is shutting down at the end of business hours on Sunday, with a phone call to the place confirming that it will indeed be closing that day. No reason has been given for the closure, with the only information given (via a picture of a sign about the closing of the place) saying that the eatery will have a going-away party in the bar on Friday evening while also saying that much of the staff at the Burlington location will take new job positions at the Woburn location.
The Burlington Mall outlet of Uno Pizzeria and Grill was one of the first in the Boston area, opening its doors nearly 30 years ago; it is one of three to close over the past couple of years, with locations in Cambridge's Harvard Square and Waltham shutting down as well. (Other locations have also closed over the past decade or so, including outlets in Newton Corner, Cambridge's Porter Square, and Allston.) Existing locations can be found in Boston (3), Braintree, Dedham, Framingham, Revere, Swampscott, and Woburn
