Restaurant served final meal in October

SAUGUS, Mass. —Everything had to go at the Hilltop Steakhouse in Saugus on Saturday, even the kitchen sink.

Watch report

The 52-year-old restaurant on Route 1 was forced to close in October due to declining business.

On Saturday everything from barstools and signs to the original cookbook were all put up for auction. Owners said that since announcing the closure, people had been stealing mementos from the famous restaurant, which is known for its outdoor neon cactus and fiberglass cows.

Cows at the former Braintree restaurant, which closed in 2007, sold for an estimated $3,000 each.

Former owner, the late Frank Giuffrida, opened the western-style restaurant in 1961. His widow, Irene Giuffrida, said her husband had dreams of running a steakhouse as soon as they got married.

“On our honeymoon he kept saying to me, ‘I’m going to open up a steakhouse. What do you think?’” Irene Giuffrida said at the restaurant’s final day of service. “I said, ‘Frank I don’t know a thing about the restaurant business.’”
