NEW ORLEANS -- The grill at a popular Uptown burger joint will soon go cold.

The Uptown Messenger reports that the Bud’s Broiler on Calhoun Street will close Sunday after 40 years in business.

Jason Qader, the 62-year-old man who has owned the restaurant for the last two decades, spent Tuesday saying goodbye to longtime customers as he prepares to retire, The Messenger reported.

The spot will be closed for two to three months before it reopens as a new restaurant. Read the full Uptown Messenger report to find out what will open in the location.
