Restaurant closing at 2245 W. Alabama Houston TX 77098

Ueberrito's burrito-serving mission on West Alabama has come to an end. Previously known as Mission Burritos with the tag line fresh fast food, it appears to be the latest casualty of raising property values in the Upper Kirby/Montrose area, and the hikes in rent that the heftier tax bills to the landlord typically entail.

Mission Burrito changed its name last year, following a legal dispute over the use of the mission moniker with another company in the food business.

The sign and the playground equipment are already gone 


Überrito still has restaurants at other locations, the closest at 1609 Durham. A new one is said to be coming in the Westheimer-Voss area, to replace the one in Upper Kirby, whose mission has been cut short unceremoniously.

In other news from West Alabama, the new Owl Bar has now opened its doors on the next lot to the East, not to mention its sizable deck; -- a suitable perch to obverse the bustling street life below, if there were any. -- Other than an occasional canine taking its owner exercising. Parking is in the back. 

APPRAISED VALUE OF LAND AND BURRITO BARN: 
UP MORE THAN $400,000 SINCE 2011
