Five Guys restaurant, with its free peanuts and red-and-white checkered décor, has announced that it will close its Oak Park location – the first in Illinois – on Nov. 19.

The restaurant, located at 1115 Lake St., placed a sign on the window thanking “our guests and the town of Oak Park for a great ride.”

Calls to Five Guys’ corporate offices were not returned.

The sign on the door invites Five Guys fans to visit their locations in Berwyn and Melrose Park.

Five Guys’ website identifies 25 locations in Chicago and some 500 locations in the U.S.
