An Atlantic City landmark is shutting its doors -- at least for now.

Los Amigos, a popular Mexican restaurant, is closed citing, "poor labor market, exorbitant food costs, and fuel and energy costs."

They made a post on their social media page, which at the time of this writing, had over 200 comments.

We are sorry to say Los Amigos will be closing its doors until further notice due to the poor labor market, exorbitant food costs, and fuel and energy costs. We would like to thank all our customers & past employees that have supported us since we opened in 1979. We wish you all the best.

Since 1979, the restaurant has been located in its unique building at 1926 Atlantic Ave., which has been in that spot since 1884, according to Los Amigos' website.
