Crazy King Burrito and Mar y Tierra, two Mexican restaurants in Little Rock, are permanently closing their doors.


Crazy King Burrito, a franchise with locations in Mexico, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri and Texas, made an announcement on Tuesday about the closure of their Little Rock outpost at 401 S. Bowman Road. The business opened less than six months ago.

Mar y Tierra, located at 1900 W. 3rd St. across from the Capitol building, will close after service on Monday, Dec. 18, according to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page. Following a long lead-up dating back to 2020, Mar y Tierra first opened in May 2022. Translating to “sea and land,” the restaurant was known for its prominent seafood theme, which included an imposing octopus mural.
