The tipline told us that Mama Testa Taqueria will be closing its doors in Hillcrest this Saturday, October 11.

The colorfully-decorated eatery, whose menu features soft, crunchy and steamed tacos as well as homemade soups, has been open on University Avenue since 2004.

Owner Cesar Gonzalez, who was featured in a 2009 episode of the Food Network's "Throwdown with Bobby Flay", is reportedly planning to move the taco shop to a different neighborhood. During this final week in Hillcrest, Mama Testa's has been running different deals daily, from $2 beers to 30% off tacos.

Though official word hasn't been released, we're hearing the new location is in Mira Mesa and that they will reopen in two to three months.
