JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After eight years filling Jacksonville's bellies from downtown to Avondale, Chomp Chomp will close its doors for the final time this weekend.
"Well, it's true when people say all good things must come to an end," the owners announced Wednesday evening on Instagram. "It's that time for Chomp Chomp. We feel the restaurant has run its course."
It's the end of an era for a restaurant that has been one of the city's best kept secrets since it was nestled in a nondescript hole in the wall along The Elbow -- before migrating to its Herschel Street digs.
So say goodbye to your favorites, like Westsider tacos, the Philly Experiment and Happy Little Trees. Or just watching "Predator" on VHS and playing Nintendo while sipping PBR and waiting on your to-go order.
The only good news here is the restaurant will be open through Saturday, so Chompers can enjoy a last meal before it's gone for good. That and the owners have promised not to run out of Westsiders until then.

Hello Chompers! Well, it's true when people say all good things must come to an end. It's that time for Chomp Chomp. We feel the restaurant has run its course. It has been such a fun 8 years (5 downtown and 3 in Avondale). Our last day is this Saturday. We had so much fun!!! We love our guests and crew!!! We do not want to be one of those restaurants that close in the middle of the night. We have given our staff as much notice as we were able and wish them the best. So come hang with us this weekend and get your last official Westsider or Chomp fave!!! We'll be serving the regular menu through Saturday with exceptions as we run out of menu items. We'll have Westsiders and burgers until the very end!!!! Thanks for the support!!! Love you all!!! #chompchomp #chompchomprules #local #localbusiness #endofanera @igersjax
