Hundreds of Veterans Dine Free at Rico’s Cafe for Holiday

An event to honor our Northern Michigan veterans is making sure their stomachs are satisfied.

Starting early this morning and ending at 8 p.m., Rico’s Cafe in Grawn served veterans complimentary breakfast and lunch, and is serving them dinner too.

Veterans from all over Northern Michigan come in to get a meal and socialize with other veterans.

The restaurant was full before the official start time of 8 a.m., and it should be packed all day.

Owners Rick and Lori Dubro have been doing the all-day buffet for 16 years now — and it’s their way of saying thank you to those who’ve served their country.

The owners plan to do this event again next year.
