Liz and Brian Bathgate, who opened their Big B’s Beef at 605 W. Douglas in Delano in December of 2013, have closed the restaurant.

A post on the restaurant’s Facebook page on Monday morning let customers know about the closing.

“We are very sad to let you all know that we have decided to close our location in Delano,” the post read. “As many of you know, we have a few young children that need us at this time, and have had several important equipment items break on us. We are closing for a while, but will keep you informed when we are able to offer catering again.”

Before it moved to Delano, the restaurant operated at 4628 S. Seneca. It specialized in Chicago-style style sandwiches, hot dogs, fries, soups and Italian beef and sausage.

I haven’t been able to reach the owners but will let you know when I do.
