The Chili's restaurant in Menlo Park is closing, a spokeswoman has confirmed.
The restaurant, at the intersection of El Camino Real and Roble Avenue, has operated in Menlo Park for 26 years, according to Alex Andrade, the city's business development specialist.
It will close on Wednesday, July 8, the Chili's spokeswoman said.
The restaurant chain responded to an Almanac inquiry with an e-mail. Spokeswoman Stacey Sullivan wrote: "We constantly review the performance of our restaurants and from time to time will make the tough decision to close a restaurant based on evaluative criteria, including sales figures, lease agreements and other factors.
"We are very grateful to the loyal guests who have visited this location over the years and encourage them to continue enjoying their favorite spiced up flavors at our 24 other Chili's locations in the greater San Francisco area."
Ms. Sullivan did not say how many people the restaurant employs.
The Chili's restaurant nearest the Menlo Park location is in Mountain View, according to the company's Web site.
