Coram's Steak & Egg gave out 300 tickets to families in need so they could come enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal for free.
The tradition officially returned this year after owner Willard Coram passed away in 2014. His daughter Margo Coram and her husband TJ Edwards decided it was time to bring it back.
"We decided this was the window of opportunity to try and bring it back, to try to carry her father's legacy even further. Now we've never done this. So that's why we grabbed a small number, we had tickets we allocated through the salvation army," Edwards said.
They still welcomed regulars in and promised to not turn anyone away as long as they had food to serve.
