Headed to Winooski to take the El Diablo Challenge? Better make other plans. It's been dark inside Don Pedro's Taqueria since Saturday.

A sign apparently dashed off in pencil warns potential guests, "Closed until further notice!"

But other signs indicate there will be no further notice. The restaurant's phone line has been disconnected, and owner Pierre Mesa has not answered phone calls or emails.

The restaurant survived just less than a year after its August 11, 2011 opening. At the time, Mesa reported that he served about 550 people a night in the quick-service Mexican eatery's first week.

In recent months, business appeared to have slowed drastically from the original mania, despite attempts at new gimmicks such as a weekly salsa dance night.

R.I.P. to the Don.
