Just over a year after opening, Patty Burger, 1952 N. Farwell Ave, is closed.

According to Patty Burger in Chicago, the Milwaukee location closed its doors for the last time late last week. Due to a failing economy and slow business, the burger joint made a decision to close its second restaurant.

Located across Farwell Avenue and Irving Place from Comet Café, Patty Burger listed a menu of standard meat and veggie burgers customizable with fresh toppings and toasted buns.

Patty Burger's Chicago location is at 72 E. Adams St. in the Loop.
