The owner of the Buckhorn, in San Antonio, New Mexico, which is known for its green chile cheeseburgers, announced he is closing the restaurant.
He made the announcement on the restaurant's answering machine.
"Hey, this is Bob at the Buckhorn. Um, I regret to say that the Buckhorn will be closing its doors,” owner Bobby Olguin can be heard saying in the message.
The Buckhorn is a third-generation family restaurant. It first gained notoriety in 2005 when GQ wrote an article highlighting their green chile cheeseburgers. Then a cookoff with celebrity chef Bobby Flay gave the Buckhorn international attention.
While experiencing success in the industry, Olguin was diagnosed with cancer and his perspective on life changed.
"It was stage three, you know, all the chemo, radiation and everything. So, going through this process, you become a little bit more humble about your life and realize what's important,” Olguin said.
Buckhorn will serve its last burgers on Dec. 12.
