UPDATE: Shake It! Burgers and Dogs is Out of Business
The burger-centric restaurant in the location of the former Cha Cha Cha Cuban Bistro was open less than a year.
After a little less than a year, Cha Cha Cha's burger-centric replacement has closed its doors.
Paper has gone up on the door and windows and a sign has announced that, as of Jan. 11, Shake It! Burgers and Dogs has ceased operations.
"We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you and, again, we thank you for your business," the brief note to customers reads. No reason was provided for the closure.
Shake It! Burgers and Dogs opened on Washington Street just last February, on the heels of Don's Burgers, Fries and Fountain's January 2012 opening. It replaced the former Cha Cha Cha Cuban Bistro. Those owners--also owners of Sushi Lounge across the street--cited at the time that Cha Cha Cha was in need of a larger space.
Owner Ray Luetters, who took over the business in June 2012, cited health reasons for the closure.
He added, "the new proprietor will apparently will be opening soon."
Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly indicated new ownership began in December 2012.
