A long-running food trailer in the Longwood Medical Area has reportedly closed. The family-run Sami’s Trailer (107 Avenue Louis Pasteur), which is known for its wraps, announced last week it would have to close indefinitely.

A post on Facebook from the Sami’s page, first shared by Boston Restaurant Talk, indicated the closure was sudden. The post has since been removed, and calls to Sami’s Trailer on Monday went unanswered. Named in Eater Boston’s guide to Middle Eastern food, the food trailer first opened in 1979, serving a variety of falafel, shawarma, lamp, and gyro wraps, plus Mediterranean sides and salads, breakfast sandwiches, and coffee.

Sami’s closed temporarily in 2012 after facing regulations from the city for its status as a food stand, as opposed to a mobile food purveyor. It eventually reopened, resuming its place as a standby grab-and-go spot on Avenue Louis Pasteur. Eater has reached out to Sami’s and will share any new information as it becomes available.
