The enterprise began as a popular food cart before opening the brick-and-mortar restaurant in late 2012. The business had been listed for sale prior to this week's closure. The space, at 3848 SE Gladstone, is quite large, including two main dining rooms, a large kitchen, a separate back room, and outdoor seating.
Shut Up and Eat's signature sandwiches were as expansive as their space, and included an Italian hoagie, stuffed with meat, oil, and vinegar, a meatball sub with plenty of tomato sauce, and the Broad Street Bomber, their twist on a cheesesteak. It has not been announced what will replace the business, or if the proprietors have any further plans for the future.
