Penrith’s Beefy’s Burgers has announced its immediate closure, choosing to exit its High Street location after five years.
The burger joint opened on High Street in 2017, arriving at a time when a host of similar restaurants were opening in Penrith.
It survived the COVID pandemic and lockdowns but today confirmed it had served its last burger.
“After managing to ride the wave of a number of trying years, some ongoing concerns have led us to the decision to permanently close our Beefy’s on High St,” the business said in a Facebook post.
“After looking at a number of options to stay open we have come to the decision it would be best to move on.
“We would like to extend a thank you to everyone who ever bought a burger, chips or even a drink. To all our regulars, without you we probably would have closed long ago and to all our staff, drivers and anyone who has helped us along the way much love.”
Just found out Penrith’s own Beefy’s Burgers is closing with immediate effect.
If you didn’t go, you’ll never know.
This is a crushing blow for the western Sydney burger scene. I feel like I’ve lost a loved one.
