“Some of them can’t make it home to their families because they’re out on the road. A lot of people would like to be home with their families celebrating that day,” Jesse Porter, a manager at Cowboy Cafe, said. “We’re kind of a family to most truckers here. We’ve built a relationship with a lot of them. I’m just trying to up it a little and show them we appreciate what they do and here’s a for-free dinner for them.”
