BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

An iconic downtown Birmingham eatery served its last hot dog Tuesday.

Lyric Hot Dogs & Grill closed after 56 years in business. The owners learned in November that they would have to relocate due to construction at the Lyric Theatre next door.

But instead of starting over in a new location, the owners decided to close. Customers new and old are upset over losing their spot.

"It's very sad to know that a regular iconic establishment is going to be leaving 3rd Avenue and downtown Birmingham," Paulette Johnson said.

Owner posted a sign on the door thanking them for their support.
