A public plea posted on Facebook by a downtown Huntsville pizza shop has social media hot as a pizza oven after the restaurant announced its landlord is kicking it out.

The owner says his landlord isn't renewing his lease, which he says he's paid on time, every time, for 11 years.

"It's a shame it's going to be closed down," said Joshua Riddle, who came to Sam and Greg's for a stop in his bachelor party Saturday night.

"When I heard they were closing down, I was very adamant about coming here to celebrate with all my buddies," said Riddle.

Sam and Greg's owner Greg Hathorn said he's between a rock and a hard-place. Once his lease runs out at the end of this month, his landlord plans to renovate the upstairs, which would mean shutting down for 3 months. The problem is that there's nowhere for Sam and Greg's downtown to go- they would be losing months of revenue, which is why he posted this announcement on Facebook

The owner said he hopes to eventually find another downtown location.
