Once-iconic Austin restaurant The Frisco, which shuttered last month, is holding an online auction to sell off its remaining assets. That means items from counter stools to a deep fryer to the giant rooster statue outside will be up for bidding. The auction closes on Tuesday, September 11 at 9 a.m.

The auction website notes that the Frisco closed “so the owners can retire.” The auction has 208 lots, which are a mix of nostalgia items and restaurant equipment. It seems like pretty much everything is for sale.

Memorabilia includes various iterations of Frisco menus; framed advertisements, photographs, and art; and the restaurant’s Betty Boop menu chalkboard. Restaurant equipment includes everything from branded sugar holders and burger baskets to work tables and a deli case.

The Frisco closed in late July after 65 years in business. It was the last surviving iteration of former mayor Harry Akin’s Night Hawk chain of restaurants, which opened its first location in 1932. The restaurant was known for serving quality food and for its progressive hiring policies.
