A Texas Roadhouse restaurant is going viral after honoring the five police officers who were murdered during the Dallas sniper attack.
A family was having dinner at Texas Roadhouse restaurant when they noticed an empty table that was reserved for five people, Heart Eternal reported.
The table, decorated with a white tablecloth and patriotic flags, was reserved for Michael J. Smith, Michael Krol, Patrick Zamarripa, Lorne Ahrens, and Brent Thompson — the five officers who lost their lives during the Dallas sniper attack on July 7, CNN reported.
Several customers took photos of the table and expressed their praise for the restaurant’s actions on social media.
“Texas Roadhouse where I live reserved a table for the two firefighters who were killed in the line of duty by an arson fire… one of those firefighters was my brother in law,” wrote one Facebook user on Shareably’s page. “He left behind a wife and four [daughters]. Plus countless family and friends. Thanks Texas Roadhouse.”
“That’s showing great respect for all the armed forces that protects us all … well done texas road house,” wrote another.
“I will certainly visit these restaurants the next time I am in USA – they are not just paying lip service they are truly honoring the officers and their families as well as all the living law enforcement – Very Impressed!!” another user commented.
Texas Roadhouse has been known to honor fallen officers and veterans alike. They have reserved tables for Veterans Day in the past and give veterans discounts on meals.
