Many employees are working from home during the coronavirus pandemic, but one group of workers continues to be out on the road and a local tavern is doing something to make their days a little easier.

Mack’s Tavern located at 381 Miamisburg-Centerville Road has set up their parking lot as a lunch spot for truck drivers, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page.

With some restaurants closed until further notice and an inability to go through the drive thru, Mack’s Tavern saw a need for truck drivers during their lunch hour throughout the day.

“We are trying to give you a small piece of normalcy in this time that you are doing so much for us,” the post said.

Mack’s Tavern set up a table in the parking lot for the drivers to eat. The table is disinfected after every person, they said.

The restaurant has a large parking lot which allows room for big trucks and over sized trucks to pull in.

“Come to our patio service station and order from our menu or call in your order at 937-813-7217 or 937-520-3463,” the Facebook post said.

“Thank you truckers.”
