St. Louis diners have just a few more days to enjoy the loaded hot dogs, mac 'n' cheese and burgers at Doggie Mac’s in Carondelet.

The restaurant, which got its start as a food truck before expanding to a brick-and-mortar location at 5622 South Grand Boulevard this past fall, will close indefinitely on Sat., May 1.

"I am incredibly grateful for all of our customers and friends, both new and old, for their continued support of the food truck and the brick and mortar," chef-owner Bryan Scott said in a press release. "I look forward to being able to still serve them through the food truck and as we focus on expanding our catering and private events."

To that end, although the Doggie Mac's restaurant will close for service this weekend, Scott has other plans in the works for the space. He plans to use it as a small event space where he can host private custom dinners for parties of 20 or less and also offer custom catering for delivery. For more details and sample menus, Scott says to stay tuned to the Doggie Mac's Facebook page; to inquire for bookings, email doggiemacs@gmail.com.

And that's not all he has up his sleeve. Scott is also working on a new smash burger and premium shake concept in collaboration with Christi Hunter of C and C Food For Your Soul in Belleville, Illinois. Diners can get a sneak peek of the concept,  tentatively called Soulburger, at an upcoming pop up at C and C (1926 West Main Street) on Mon., June 7.

Doggie Mac's in Carondelet will be open for a "grand closing" from 11am to 5pm on Fri., April 30 and Sat., May 1.
