WE ARE CLOSED FOR THE SEASON
SEE YOU IN SPRING 2024!
Delicious comfort food made to travel! Prices determined by you!
Read below for details
We have decided to use a business model we have not seen before in any other restaurant.
There will be NO prices on our menu! Our customers will decide how much they will pay for their meal. Here will be your 3 options ...
1. Pay only what you can afford
2. Pay what the meal is worth to you
3. "Pay it forward" to help someone who is quietly suffering financially
You will be handed an envelope when you order. Deposit your money into the envelope, the amount will be based on the 3 choices above, then put that envelope into a mail slot near the takeout window to pay for your meal, it will be completely private. OR you can choose to pay with a credit card and the amount will be between you and your cashier.
WHY WOULD WE DO SUCH A CRAZY THING????
Please read to the end.
Sometimes God whispers and idea in your ear that challenges your way of thinking.
We did not do this lightly or on whim. Much thought and prayer went into this decision.
1. Someone who can't afford a meal, gets a meal while keeping their pride and dignity intact.
2. Someone who can afford a meal gets a great meal and pays what it's worth to them.
3. It gives those who can pay a little extra the opportunity to "pay it
forward" to someone who is quietly suffering.
This prolonged pandemic and polarized political divide is creating a toxic environment in our country. When you're overwhelmed with fear and frustration, the best answer is to respond with fearlessness, and faith
We have faith in ...
We the people
and especially West Virginians
Anyone can fall on hard times and this pandemic has only amplified the problem for many families. Imagine if you couldn't take your daughter to a special birthday dinner, or celebrate a special event, or just needed a real meal that didn't come from a microwave.
We will offer delicious meals made with quality ingredients, this is a real restaurant and we take pride in our food.
We are not rich people, we are not a non-profit, we are not a "soup kitchen". We have built a first class commercial kitchen with an enormous deck on our property with our life savings and months of hard work.
We are a family owned small business that operates on old fashioned American values...
Faith in God
Service to others
Life is more than the mindless pursuit of money and material things. We still have to pay bills, buy food, maintain the restaurant equipment and stay complaint with the health dept..
This bold move to operate solely on an honor system is scary, but we believe you must
"Be the change you wish to see in the world" and we believe this is the right thing to do.
This is our preferred business model. If for some reason we are unable to continue operations in this manner, we will adjust our pricing plan but only if the original plan proves to be unsustainable.
The founding fathers of our country had faith in "We the people" when they wrote our constitution. So, we will have faith in the people as well.
