YOLO Grill is closing... again.

In December, customer Chris Byars bought the restaurant at 803 N. West St. from its founder, Aaron Cline, who had closed it in October.

On Wednesday, Byars posted on Facebook that business isn’t good for him to keep operating the restaurant, which specializes in made-from-scratch burgers, onion rings and fries.

The post read: “Dear fans, I have really enjoyed cooking for you guys. There is a lot of self-satisfaction in making someone a meal that they enjoy. That's what gets a chef out of bed in the morning and that's why we sing in the kitchen. Unfortunately, YOLO Grill hasn't had the volume to support itself and we will be closing for good.”

Saturday will be YOLO’s last day in business.

The restaurant first opened in August 2013 in an old Sonic building that had been home to several restaurants over the years, including La Reyna 2, Sloppy Joe’s, Si Senor and Takhoma Burger.
