For The First Time In 30 Years, Cattleman’s Cafe Closed It’s Doors
Out on the historic Route 66-Amarillo Boulevard you’ll find Cattleman’s cafe. This restaurant hasn’t closed its doors once in the past 30 years. Blizzard Rocky changed that. Due to the horrible weather conditions, Cattleman’s Cafe was forced to close it’s doors.
Monday the Texas Panhandle and other parts of the US were hit by a massive Blizzard which closed many towns and cities. As for Amarillo, the city was on a standstill. Schools and businesses shut their doors for at least two days, but for one business its was the first time in 33 years.
The Cattleman’s Cafe is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Thanks to the blizzard, that changed and it was the first time the restaurant has been closed since the owner bought it in 1980. The employees weren’t able to get to work, like most of us, so the owner did what she thought was best and close the doors.
Since they’ve never locked the doors or turned off the lights, they hit a small problem-they didn’t have a key. The owner managed to get the employees out and lock the door from the inside and then went out through the side of the cafe.
Cattleman’s Cafe are back to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week beginning this morning at 6 a.m.
