honeybaked[KHTS] – Representatives of HoneyBaked Ham confirmed on Wednesday that their Valencia location closed as of Jan. 1.

HoneyBaked Ham had been in the Santa Clarita Valley for at least 20 years. The tenant of the Granary Square shopping center off of McBean Parkway was a popular local vendor of holiday turkeys and ham.

Lines could be seen snaking down the sidewalk past the door of neighboring CVS Pharmacy prior to Thanksgiving.

But between April 2010 and December 2013, the restaurant received several negative reviews on Yelp, citing cold or dry meat and poor service.

Following the closure, the closest HoneyBaked Ham for SCV residents is in Northridge.

  1. They closed all but one in southwest/south central NC a few years ago. :(

  2. Kathy Sievert Guccione John Sewell :(

  3. I heard its a bud club now

  4. Noticed this last night while heading to CVS. Hate to see it; they had good sandwiches there for lunch.

  5. I just bought one at Christmas! Guess that was our last one! :-(

  6. Honeybaked has been there for at least 28 years, if not more

  7. Lori Alaniz Lori Alaniz says:

    Noooooo that place has been there longer than I’ve been alive its one of the last originals of that old shopping mall so sad :( it’s an institution

  8. Linda Morgan Linda Morgan says:

    Same with Ameci Pizza at Soledad and Sierra Highway. Was there for a pizza one week and the next week it was closed with no notice and can’t find out why. Isn’t there another Honeybaked Ham place where Best Buy is on Newhall Ranch Road.

  9. Joe Nocella Joe Nocella says:

    Linda Morgan – no, there is no Honeybaked Ham there. Perhaps you’re confusing it with Boston Market.

  10. I loved there ham samiches

  11. Donn Miller Donn Miller says:

    I guess OJ killed that one too.

  12. Mtthw Kltnr Mtthw Kltnr says:

    Sad! But I sort of wondered when it was going to happen…especially since it’s such a specialty store?

  13. buy online, thats what I always do at the holidays to avoid the crowds….

  14. It has been there ever since that strip mall opened in 1982.

  15. There’s still one on Riverside Drive in Toluca Lake…

  16. .. weird how they just close – hard to believe it was only based on negative reviews on Yelp.. how many people really use that for the services they offered. You’d think management would look at the problems as opportunities for improvement – its not hard to make a “fresh” sandwich if that was the issue..

  17. It’s been there since the early 80s. So sad. Maybe it was an underperforming store and they just didn’t renew their lease.

  18. Don’t let this happen to another institution in town – buy See’s Candies!!

  19. I love their cranberry sauce

  20. Bought our Xmas ham there and was very disappointed in the quality….

  21. No! No! No!! I get my Easter ham there:(

  22. Alex Harvey Alex Harvey says:

    Sorry for your loss Jeremy Carson

  23. Alex Harvey Alex Harvey says:

    Sorry for your loss Jeremy Carson

  24. My mom and I went to the grand opening and OJ was signing autographs. He was part owner then.

  26. Wow!!!!!! That really sucks!!!

  27. What if we have a gift certificate for there??

  28. What if we have a gift certificate for there??

  29. Mike Hider Mike Hider says:

    After the fiasco on Christmas Eve , there’s no wonder .
    Essentially , they have 3 times per year to get it right.
    After calling Almost a week ahead to reserve a ham they STILL managed to screw things up !!

  30. OH NO..and I was thinking of stopping by this weekend to get a ham bone to make soup!!

  31. YELP NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN!!! I hate yelp they only post negative reviews & always delete positive ones & only keep reviews of “elite” yelper who are stuck up snobs who should shove yelp where the sun dont shine!! I cant believe this is cuz of yelp ..seriously disappointed

  32. Never even knew it was there!

  33. Kris says:

    Same with Greenhouse Cafe. Ate there one week, the next it was gone!!! We use Honeybaked for Easter!!! Guess I’ll try ordering online!!!!

  34. Sorry to hear of this. I’d recommend the Toluca Lake Honey Baked …BEST service, price, service etc etc. Period.

  35. I’m sorry to hear that. I got many hams there through the year.
    Have they gone out of business? They will loose a lot of business. No one has the time to find another store. I guess I had my last Honey Baked ham.

  36. How sad, all our staple stores that defined the SCV are all but gone….

  37. Nola Aronson says:

    I’m so sorry to hear this. I will miss them.

  38. At least Millers Outpost is still there.

  39. Oh No! I hate to see the classics go. :(

  40. Mike says:

    I opened that store for OJ Simpson and Ron Reynolds in Sept 1982 along with 6 others. A local resident Kelli was the original manager

  41. Greg Brown Greg Brown says:

    Try the ham from Sprouts! It’s far less expensive and better quality. Honest.
