The Vegas Diner will close for good in the coming months, according to staff.

Another longstanding Bensonhurst diner will soon be folding.

The Vegas Diner, a 24-hour neighborhood staple rooted at the corner of 86th Street and 16th Avenue since 1982, will be closing in the coming months, according to a source at the restaurant.

An announcement posted to the “South Brooklyn Food and Drink” Facebook group on Saturday, March 25 said the Vegas will close at the end of June, so that its owners can retire.

Patrons were quick to mourn the coming loss of the often crowded eatery on social media.

“End of a Brooklyn diner era,” wrote one Facebook user in response to a post about the impending closure. “Hopefully a great diner will take its place.”

“This is terrible news,” remarked another user, recalling that during her pregnancy she would often cross the Verrazano for a classic Vegas Cheeseburger Deluxe.

News of the diner’s fate comes less than a year after the closing of another longstanding Bensonhurst eatery, the Del’Rio Diner, which closed its doors on Kings Highway — where it had been in business since 1976 — last summer.
