ETX restaurant locked out, owner says closure is 'temporary'


An East Texas staple of Louisiana cooking has been locked out of its Tyler location.

The building's owner padlocked the front door and changed the locks to Fat Catz Louisiana Kitchen on Troup Highway in Tyler.

The business has been on the southeast side of Tyler since 2004.

Potential customers have left signs behind at the location including a reunion lunch that was scheduled to be held there and a person who showed up for a birthday meal, only to find the doors locked.

No reason was posted for the lockout.

The restaurant's owner left his own note saying the lockout is only temporary and said "we will be back open soon."

Calls to the restaurant owner and building owner have not been returned.
