Macaroni Grill Is Selling All Its Shit on Craigslist

Posted By on Wed, Jan 21, 2015 at 7:00 AM

All four St. Louis locations of national Italian chain Macaroni Grill closed rather abruptly last month, leaving employees and fans in the lurch. But perhaps there is a silver lining -- that is, if you're in the market for some restaurant-grade appliances. It seems Macaroni Grill is trying to unload more than 4,000 kitchen items in an auction by way of Craigslist.

Seriously this stuff is mega cheap -- everything from booths and tables to coolers and grills. It's perfect if you want to start a mid-priced, family-friendly Italian restaurant that looks just like Macaroni Grill. You can go look at the items on Monday, January 26, and the auction itself starts Tuesday at 4 p.m. You can check out the full list of items here.

Macaroni Grill made a statement about the closures last month:

"It's always a difficult decision for a restaurant to close its doors. We regret that our locations in the St. Louis and Columbia markets were closed and will honor every gift card we sold to the satisfaction of our customers including exchanging for gift cards to local Joe's Crab Shack and Brick House Tavern + Tap restaurants. Anyone holding a Romano's Macaroni Grill gift card is encouraged to get in touch with our guest relations department immediately for information on what to do."
