Don Pablo’s closes, leaving just one left in all of N.J.

The closing of the Don Pablo's Moorestown location leaves the chain with only five remaining restaurants nationwide

A national Mexican food chain which filed for bankruptcy this year has closed one of its locations in the state.

According to the Don Pablo’s Mexican Restaurant in Moorestown’s Facebook page, the chain restaurant has officially closed its doors. The number to the restaurant is no longer in service.

In 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported the chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy due to the emergence of a number of “fast casual” Mexican restaurants such as Moe’s and Chipotle, more Mexican food offerings from other restaurants such as Applebee’s, Chili’s and TGI Fridays, and the decline of people heading to casual dining locations.

With the Moorestown site no longer in operation, the Deptford Center Road restaurant in Deptford is the only remaining Don Pablo’s restaurant in the state and one of five remaining locations nationwide.

NJ Advance Media reached out to Don Pablo’s parent company Food Management Partners for comment about the restaurant closing. However, our requests were not answered by the time of this posting.
