There will be no more Dirty Love Burgers.

After 18 months in business, the Love Shack in Downtown Denton permanently closed its doors Monday morning.

A sign outside the restaurant on Hickory Street read owner Tim Love would be “redesigning and renovating the space, which will open with a new concept in early 2013.”

The last night of service for the restaurant will be Thursday, the sign read.

The same message appeared via the restaurant’s Facebook page.

“Thank you for your dedicated support and patronage and we look forward to seeing you at Tim's new concept,” the post read.

In trying to reach the owner, officials with the restaurant would not comment regarding the closing, only say that the Facebook comment was the official statement.

Love, a Denton High School graduate, opened his third Love Shack in Denton in 2011 to much fanfare.

Surprise was the initial reaction as the news of the Love Shack’s sudden closing today spread on Facebook.
