Burke's Grill Capt Herb's Pay It Forward

Capt. Herb Emory was a local radio personality, traffic reporter and all around great guy.  He was a regular diner at our restaurant and would always pay for any police officer's meal that happened to be here when he was here. To honor his memory and continue his tradition (and with his wife, Karen's permission) we are starting a fund to continue to pay for any uniformed police officer's meal who eats with us.  Capt. Herb was a great man, a selfless man, and we would love to continue his tradition.  Please consider paying it forward as a small token of appreciation to all these men and women who put their lives on the line every day for us. You may contribute here or you can come into the restaurant to donate.
