How long have you worked here? Forty-three years.
What's changed in that time? Nothing much, just the clientele. You know, we used to have all the big country stars coming here. Hank Williams Jr. used to come a lot, and we've got a picture of him up there somewhere.
How old where you when you started here? I was 32; I'm 75 now. Before here, I worked at Nero's Steakhouse in Green Hills there at Hobbs Road. I've worked here through four owners.
Are there any secret recipes? Everybody knows what grill food is: burgers, steaks, shrimp and salads. There are two other cooks herenow they've probably got some secret recipes I guess.
How many grandkids do you have? None, I never married.
How'd you manage that? When I was younger, I was a heavy drinker, more of a party person than anything else. But I quit drinkin' 24 years ago. Just stopped.
Any advice for the younger folks? Find steady work doing something worthwhile and set goals for yourself.
