The Texas T-Bone Steakhouse near 70th and O streets has closed its doors.
Owner Bennett Chamness said the restaurant closed Tuesday, but it wasn't by his choice.
Chamness leased the property, and the owner sold it to someone who plans to redevelop the site.
According to documents filed with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Department last month, a company called Precision Wash Holdings LLC is buying the property and plans to tear down the existing restaurant building and build a car wash on the site.
The sale price was $1.46 million, according to a real estate deed.
Chamness opened the restaurant in the former Lone Star Steakhouse location at 200 N. 70th St. in May 2015.
He said the restaurant was fairly successful at the site, but he does not have any plans "at this time" to consider relocating it somewhere else in Lincoln.
