(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A staple in Austin for decades, the A & W restaurant will not open this Summer and is up for sale.

The owner tells ABC 6 News he is retiring after working at the restaurant for 50 years. He says he'll remember the great employees and customers.

At this point we're told there are no potential buyers, however, the building sits next to three homes that were recently purchased by Mayo Clinic.
