Kidd Valley announces closure of original 1976 restaurant in University District

The original Kidd Valley restaurant, which opened in 1976, will be permanently closing, according to a Facebook post from Kidd Valley.

Located on Northeast 55th Street near Ravenna Park and originally opened in 1976, the 800-square-foot restaurant needed to be remodeled to bring it up to code for the Americans with Disabilities Act.

According to Kidd Valley, because of inflation, it became too expensive to remodel or build a new store.

All employees were offered a position at another location.

The restaurant’s last day will be Aug. 14.
