Bad news for diners who go to a popular southeast Shreveport restaurant. The Posado's location on East Bert Kouns has closed its doors for good.

A sign was placed on the door to the business earlier this week. It indicates this is the end of the road for the local Mexican restaurant.

Posados has been known in the area for years for giving out free ice cream to all diners. They also have had specials on many weeknights. But reviews at the east Shreveport location have been mixed over the past couple of years.

Sales tax records show the property is still owned by Posados Cafe Inc of Tyler, Texas. The property is valued at $1.7 million dollars. The Posados website no longer has the Bert Kouns location mention. They still operate locations on Mansfield Road in Shreveport and Old Minden Road in Bossier City.
