Historic decor from J.R.’s Stockyards in Tysons hits auction block

A slushy machine from Tysons’ original steakhouse could be yours for a little over $200.

The device is among thousands of furnishings and memorabilia pieces currently being auctioned off to the highest bidder after J.R.’s Stockyards Inn officially shuttered earlier this year.

Run by Rasmus Auctions on behalf of J.R.’s Custom Catering, the event is being held online, but potential buyers can make an appointment to inspect the wares in person at the historic restaurant between 9 a.m. and noon on Monday (March 14).

Located at 8130 Watson Street, J.R.’s Stockyards opened in 1978 as one of Tysons’ first restaurants outside of Tysons Corner Center, according to its website. The venue ceased its restaurant operations in 2011, evolving to become a private banquet hall and caterer.

J.R.’s got Fairfax County’s approval to redevelop the site in October 2020, but it sold the property to an apparent affiliate of Tysons Corner Center owner Macerich in December. Macerich has not revealed yet whether it will move forward with the planned residential building or pursue a different development.

Stockyards Inn items up for auction include cookware, stoves and refrigerators, signs that once decorated the restaurant’s walls, cotton candy and popcorn carts, ceramic cows dressed like chefs, and a snow plow.

The auction will close at 10:07 a.m. on March 15.
