They Were Denied A Booth At A Popular Restaurant, The Reason Why Will Make Your Heart Soar….

It was a bold move for such a big restaurant to take.

Typically when you go to a restaurant, you are given the option to either sit at a table or a booth with your loved ones. Well, when one family spied an empty booth that they weren’t allowed to sit in, they decided to take a picture of it for a very unique reason…

Little did they know, the photos will immediately go viral.

When one family walked into a Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Dallas, Texas they were confused as to why they couldn’t sit down at what appeared to be an empty booth. It was only when they took a closer look at the sign at the edge of the table that the family humbly realized it was being saved for a group of VIPs, who they’d consider themselves lucky to ever meet in person.
As soon as the family saw the sign on the table, they felt honored to be sitting so close to these VIPs. And because the people were not going to walk into the Texas Roadhouse restaurant any second, they were sitting on the edge of their seats.
That’s because the booth was reserved for five slain police officers. The restaurant wanted to honor and recognize the brave police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. It was their way to memorialize them. Even though it was just a small way to do so, other customers noticed and were proud to share the news on social media and promote the Texas Roadhouse location.

The sign on the table read:

“We remember and honor the five slain police officers, Sergeant Michael J. Smith, Officer Michael Krol, Officer Patrick Zamarripa, Senior Corporal Lorne Ahrens, and Mr. Brent Thompson, who worked for the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police Department, that the Texas Roadhouse restaurant reserved a table for. We thank you for your service. May you rest in peace.”


The customers were honored to know that the table at the busy restaurant was set aside as a way to honor these dedicated police officers. Because they had lost their lives in the line of duty protecting the residents of Dallas, the Texas location of the restaurant wanted the hundreds of patrons strolling through the door that night to know this restaurant stands with its police officers.

The customers were all too happy to snap pictures of the sign and the table, which included an American flag. The management at the restaurant couldn’t have been happier with it.

What a meaningful gesture for the restaurant to do. We are sending prayers for those who have lost loved ones in the line of duty. We are truly thankful for all they do.
