Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque has closed in the Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City.

“We were there 16 or 17 years. But we couldn’t work out a new deal with them,” said Gary Berbiglia, co-owner of Arthur Bryant’s. “We didn’t want to leave.”

Roxann Kincaid, spokeswoman for Ameristar, said the restaurant closed earlier this month.

“We enjoyed a very long relationship with Arthur Bryant’s,” Kincaid said. “We are looking for fresh ideas, new food and beverage options.”

Ameristar also offers barbecue at its Horizons Buffet.
