Maybe you already heard, but the patriotically decorated Independence Grill shut its doors on Sunday, March 14. Here’s the goodbye post from near midnight on the locally owned restaurant’s Facebook page:

So that's all she wrote folks! Thank you so much for your support of our risky business venture this last year and a half. We have so many memories. Sadly, we have closed up shop tonight and will miss you all. :( We wish more than anyone that we could have made our little Indy Grill a lasting success.

It may have been kind of sudden, as earlier in the day at around 4:30 p.m., the grill posted:

I have to say...I finally expanded and tried our Revolutionary Burger yesterday with the Raspberry Chipotle Sauce, cream cheese, and pineapple slaw and have been wondering why I haven't had on every day for the last year! You should DEFINITELY make today the day to try one.

The place was known for its many variations on the hamburger form and for its support of the tea party movement.
