A bar/restaurant slang used to describe the end of something or as an action to get rid of something. Can also be used in reference to "offing" or killing someone...which is where (slightly) its origin comes from...
It's origin comes from when they would dig grave sites 8 feet long and 6 feet deep. When a person died, they would be "86-ed".
"86 the mahi mahi"
"86 that drunken moron"
"That's it, pal, you don't shut up and you'll be 86-ed"
