They have extra T-P, and Wednesday they sold 400 rolls – a buck a piece.

We had people trying to buy 30 rolls at a time. We said no no no. We finally we put a limit on it 5 rolls to a person. But at least it was something that got people interested.

The restaurant says it will make anything on the full menu — breakfast, lunch, or dinner — to-go.
