"We were encouraged by Monette residents to open the restaurant," Barbara said. "The people of Monette have been very good to us while we were working on the building getting it ready to open. They have been accommodating and we appreciate everyone."
The Carrs said their first day was hectic and they appreciated all of the customers and their patience.
Currently the cooks will include Betty Beck and Terry Carr. Laura Jones is the waitress and Barbara and Blake will be where they are needed. Plans are to add additional staff.
"We are looking forward to serving the people of Monette," Barbara said. "Everyone has really made us feel welcome here."
Terry said he wants the restaurant to be a place where the entire family can come, order food to make every member of the family happy and dine in a pleasant, friendly atmosphere.
