An early morning fire on The Avenue damaged a much-loved Hampden restaurant, but the owner said it would return.

According to the AP, a fire started in the kitchen of Holy Frijoles just before 2 a.m. Owner Geoffrey Danek told the Baltimore Sun that the restaurant would normally be open at that time, but it closed early. In a Facebook post, Danek said no one was injured in the one-alarm blaze.

In addition to¬†Mexican food, Holy Frijoles’ relaxed atmosphere makes it an inviting neighborhood hangout. The pinball machines in the back were another added attraction. Danek said the 20-year-old restaurant would return.

“We’ve made it this far and I’m ready to spend the next 20 years with you Baltimore,” he wrote.
