March 29th is a National Mom & Pop Business-Owners Day

Today March 29 is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. It is a day to recognize small business owners, particularly husband and wife business owners. These are the restaurants, pharmacies, business, etc.. that are family owned no franchise or chains.

I was listening to the radio and they were talking about this topic. I love the idea of visiting these type of places. We need to help the economy by supporting these type of businesses. Here are some of the places the callers called in about, which I have never heard or been to any of them, I will add them to my list of places to visit:

1)The first place is in danger of closing its doors-
Brothers-In-Law's Bar-B-Que
503 Freeport St Houston 77015 713.453.2676

ph: 713-683-6700

3)Doyle's Restaurant

4)El Jarrito

5)Pappy's Cafe

6)This one is one I have visited and highly recommend. I love it.
Empire Cafe

So, today let us all head out and find a mom and pop business to support. Go to your favorite spot. I remember a burger place called Luke's, not sure if it was a mom and pop, but it is now closed. Their burgers were the best. I loved going to eat there. Now the building is the only reminder we have of a place we use to go to, and the best burgers I have ever tasted.
