Little Rock, Arkansas is just one city where restaurants have been forced to close their dining rooms and offer only take-out.

The owners of Doe’s Eat Place say their customers have been very supportive and it showed when someone left a huge tip.

“It just tugged at your heart a little bit,” says Katherine Eldridge.

Eldridge says she had to cut her staff significantly, so the blows to the business are having a ripple effect.

Luckily, she said one regular, Andy, who also doubles as the mailman, helped make those blows a little softer.

“His tab was 12 dollars and some cents. He had a cheeseburger fries and a coke,” she recalls.

“It was 2,200 dollars so he had left 100 dollars for every one of our employees,” she says.
