Turntable Eatery, the pizza restaurant from the owners of awesome dive bar Barfly’s, announced on its Facebook page yesterday that it will be closing at the end of July.

Taking the place of the short-lived spot previously home to House Pizzeria will be a Cluck-n-Burger, a restaurant version of the food trucks in front of Violet Crown Social Club and South Austin Beer Garden that specializes in all sorts of burgers (beef, chicken, turkey, salmon) and wings.

Husband-and-wife team Aaron and Kassandra Esserman opened the original trailer in January 2018 and won last year’s Trucklandia Fest, which earned them $10,000. They hope to open their in September. Both food trucks will remain in operation after the restaurant opens.
