Down­town Ta­coma’s Patty’s Burg­ers has closed. Its last day of busi­ness was Oct. 31.

The restau­rant, known for its big burg­ers and gi­ant mugs of soda, opened in 2016.

“We closed the last day of Oc­to­ber,” said owner Patty Sanchez-Tolosa.

The good news?

“The South Ta­coma

Way one will re­main open,” said Sanchez-Tolosa.

That’s her orig­i­nal Patty’s Burg­ers, which opened in 2010.

Cus­tomers at the diner with a retro 1950s-era decor can still find the gi­ant Cake burger, the menu of more than 30 kinds of burg­ers, foot-long hot dogs, fries, rings and shakes.

That South Ta­coma restau­rant space is known for its floor-to-ceil­ing ho­mage to James Dean, Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe and clas­sic cars.

Sanchez-Tolosa said the down­town lo­ca­tion was not meet­ing the com­pany’s ex­pec­ta­tions be­cause “the build­ing had too many is­sues.”

She said she’s scout­ing neigh­bor­hoods to pos­si­bly re­open a se­cond lo­ca­tion. She said she prefers a lo­ca­tion near a res­i­den­tial area.
