New Mexican restaurant Jack-n-Grill has closed its two remaining Denver locations, at 2524 Federal Boulevard and 9310 Sheridan Boulevard. The restaurant made famous by seven-pound breakfast burritos once had three Denver-area stores, and its owner at one point planned on opening two or three more.

No word about the possibility of those future green chile-smothered burritos, but the existing Jack-n-Grill locations have closed for good, Westword reports. The Federal Boulevard restaurant is under contract for $1.3 million, though the buyer has yet to be disclosed.

Owner Jack Martinez opened his first Jack-n-Grill in 2000 after selling elote and other New Mexican street food from a parking lot. The restaurant gained notoriety in 2009 when Adam Richman from the Food Network’s Man vs. Food attempted to eat one of the seven-pound burritos. After 18 years in business, Martinez said he was selling his restaurants to split assets during a divorce.
