It comes with great sadness to report that Square's Bar-B-Q Pit & Grill has closed their doors. Posted on both front doors is a message that reads:

After forty years of serving Abilene we are closing our doors. We are grateful to have been part of our community. Please visit our sister restaurant Al's Mesquite Grill.

I, for one, will dearly miss eating at Square's. Many times in the past, my co-workers and I would go there for lunch. Not only was it a convenient location, but the food was always spot on.

The only silver lining I find in a local business closing is that in this case, the recipes we've grown to love over the decades live on at Al's Mesquite Grill.

Al's Mesquite Grill is located at 4801 Buffalo Gap Road.

Thank you, Square's - we'll miss you!
