It was the last Don Pablo’s left, and last night management came in and closed up the beloved Tex-Mex eatery located in Deptford NJ (in the Target Parking lot). We found several employee posts on social media about the closing, and the nearby Uno’s location posted to employees to come over and apply at Uno’s. The post goes on to say “(Don Pablo’s) Corporate came in, no warning, and locked the doors”. Note: Glassboro’s Mexican Mariachi also has openings, specifically looking for cooks!
UPDATE: We had a reporter stop by at the store at noon and captured the sign on the front door announcing the closing. A large truck was out back, already clearing things out.
Earlier today I captured an image of their Facebook page saying permanently closed, and then a little bit later it seems the page was removed from Facebook. The restaurant website DonPablos.com has no content other than “Please come back later”.
We have reached out to the ownership group via email, and will post more as we get details.
Incredibly sad to see this location close, and for employees to be out of work. A side question… what becomes of the unique building and its VERY valuable Deptford liquor license?
