Dos Machos is saying goodbye to Billings after 40 years.

The owners, who are both nearing 80 years old, and management agreed it's time to move on to the next phase of life. They announced the move Tuesday night on the restaurant's Facebook page.

The locally owned restaurant started out on Rimrock Mall property in the 1980s, but moved to its current location at 980 S. 24th St. W. about 20 years later.

The land and building are for sale, though the owners are still discussing what will happen to the liquor license.

The restaurant's 60 employees were notified of the upcoming closure last week. Some have worked there for more than 20 years.

Staff members said Wednesday they are blown away by all the community support.

"It's been home for a very long time. We've all shed a lot of tears. It's been great, the support of the community. Like I said, it's really touching to see how many people really care. So I'm really thankful for that," said General Manager Sheri Daubert said, who been with the company for over 20 years.

The final day of business will be March 31.
