"Roy Mallett has seen Austin's food and social scene change right before his eyes.The 81-year-old still works at an iconic Austin restaurant, putting smiles on customer's faces.

On any given Monday through Thursday, you can catch chef Roy Mallett whipping up a master "feast" in the Frisco restaurant kitchen.

Chef Roy started as a busboy at the original Night Hawk restaurant in 1955.

“From there I was a dishwasher, then assistant chef. He would move on to become chef. When the original night hawk shut down, Mallett stayed in the family, and relocated to The Frisco on Burnet Road. Customers often come in asking for him. He keeps smiles on customers' faces with his pies, salads and other home cooked food, made with love."
