The Miraz restaurant and pancake house, 7500 Sheridan Road, is closing due to disagreements between the owner and his landlord.

The restaurant, formerly known as Stars & Stripes, was operated by Orlando Jaimez, who said he is sad to see it close.

He said the decision deeply disappointed his loyal customers, many of whom have been eating there for over a decade. It closed late last week.

“The rent was too high, and I was having a hard paying it, and things needed to be fixed,” said Jaimez, who said he ran the restaurant since 2004.

The restaurant was not ordered closed by the Kenosha County Health Department.

Jaimez said he has no immediate plans to open another restaurant.

“I’ve been here for a long time; it’s like being married to a wife for 12 years and divorcing,” he said. “You can’t say you don’t have feelings. I’m very disappointed.”

The Miraz primarily served American entrees and burgers. It was open 24 hours a day on weekends, which made it a popular after-hours spot.

The building is owned by 7500 Sheridan Road Partners and registered in the care of George Detris. Attempts to contact the building owner were unsuccessful.

Customer Carl Gilbert said he will have to find another local eatery to frequent.

“I’m gonna miss it. We came here Sundays after church and on Fridays for the fish fry,” he said. “I sometimes came here two times a day.”
