Popular Mexican-soul food restaurant Blaxican has closed its brick-and-mortar location. The Blaxican food truck and catering business will continue to operate.

Owner Will Turner announced the closure on the business' Facebook page on May 8:

Que Pasa Y'all, unfortunately we have to permanently close our Peachtree Corners restaurant. The facts are even after loans and fundraisers we don't have the financial reserves to stay open after being closed for 3 months, and not knowing how long it will be for things to return to normal. We are still able to operate our food truck and will be doing neighborhood events and private caterings. Email for more info.
Thanks for the memories, love and support.

Turner decided to open a freestanding restaurant in 2017 at 5260 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., after operating his highly-rated food truck since 2010. Blaxican was voted the top food truck in the country by readers of Mobile Cuisine and was rated as a top five food truck by AJC readers.

The Blaxican's menu features fusion items including collard green quesadillas, and specials including shrimp and grits tostadas and The Blasian taco.

The AJC has contacted Turner for comment.
