This one was nice because it is in the early stages of the opening of their new restaurant in Crockett that they have been talking about and dreaming about for 5-6 years. In the last 60-90 days the construction has been rapid fire(they broke ground on July 6th). They especially want to thank his mom and stepfather for everything.

Currently they are both working full time(she as an Executive Chef at a country club and he managing and cooking at Reveille). They also have 2 daughters which are being homeschooled. They are moving to Crockett and will be about 12-15 miles from the restaurant.

When it does open they plan to have the hours Wednesday through Sunday from 11AM - 8PM. The timeline so far is: Friends and Family Event in November, December they will be booking some private events and in December/January they hope to have hiring done. There will be a soft opening in January and the Grand Opening middle of February/or early March. All depending on many factors.

For the menu(which they have basically worked) it will be 5-7 smoked meats, 7-10 sides, and Kathy is going to be doing desserts and baked goods. Then after a month or so they will be adding plates. Burgers will definitely be on the menu as well as blackened catfish and specials.The restaurant capacity is 135 people.
