Restaurant Staff Buys Police Officer’s Dinner

Every day, law enforcement put their lives on the line to ensure the safety of the general public. One restaurant staff decided to thank their local police in a special way!

A Tasty Thanks

The Slidell police officers often visit the local Outback Steakhouse for lunch, dinner and even late-night meals. Manager Arline Wood has nothing but nice things to say about the officers that visit her restaurant! She loves having them in and server Zoe says “they’re the sweetest guys.”

They always treat the staff with respect and dignity and Arline appreciates their continued patronage. That night two employees decided to take special care of some of the officers that had come in at the end of their shift. The Outback duo picked up the check for the four officers that were dining that night! Totaling around $67, server Zoe dropped off the receipt with a little note thanking the men for all that they do.

Outback Goes Viral

The officers were very moved by this kind gesture and gave Zoe a large tip in return! They posted a picture the receipt on the Slidell PD Facebook page and received even more positive feedback. Slidell PD said,

“Words can’t describe how this makes all of us feel. Thank you Ms. Arlene and Zoe for being so kind and showing your appreciation for law enforcement.”

Manager Arline said she never expected this kind of media attention, she just wanted to thank the officers for their service.

Keep It Up

Arline and Zoe hope this helps to inspire other people to take the time to thank the men in blue. Now, more than ever, the police officers need to be reminded that we still appreciate what they do!
