Starting at noon on Thursday, the burger joint will serve a traditional turkey dinner where customers can pay what they can.

Bar manger Dylan Alford and his fiancé came up with the idea after their plans with family were canceled because of COVID-19.

Alford said he knows it’s been a tough year for so many and the restaurant is lucky to have an outdoor space that’s helped keep them in business, so they wanted to give back.

They’ll have approximately 100 meals to serve. In addition to the outdoor patio, the restaurant will have a takeout window open as well.

Alford said they will have a small crew serving on Thanksgiving, so he’s asking anyone who is planning to come to be patient.

The restaurant will also be collecting donations for Second Harvest Food Bank.
