Romano's Macaroni Grill closed Oct. 24 after 14 years in Ahwatukee Foothills.

"Our lease expired and we decided not to renew this particular location," the company said in a post on their corporate Facebook page. "While it is always a tough decision to close a restaurant, we have offered transfer opportunities to our team members from the Ahwatukee location and hope that you'll come see them at our other Phoenix-area locations."

The closure of Macaroni Grill leaves On The Border as the only remaining restaurant at the corner of Ray Road and 50th Street. Rock Bottom Brewery closed in June.
