What started as a food truck has expanded to a place where folks can enjoy a variety of food selections and blessings for the heart and soul.
Promised Rest Restaurant, located at 1250 S. 9th St., has been open since January.
The restaurant, owned by Eric and LaTosha Doby, serves diner style food.
E. Doby said their idea started with the food truck – and a Bible verse.
We’d already had a food truck. The food truck was actually inspired by us feeding the homeless in Amarillo. That’s why it’s called Promise Rest 401, that is the promised rest of Christ in Hebrews 4:1,” he said.
“So when we when we decided on the restaurant it like I said, it wasn’t like a main business venue. It was more of ‘wow you know we can you know, what does it profit a man again whole world and lose his soul?’ So we wanted to be more stewards of Lord man and get in here and have people to come in and it kind of be like a sanctuary of hope for people to come in. And, and not not be afraid to say, you know, Jesus, you know, I mean in the world we live in I mean, everybody have their little sects, and that just would, that’s what we wanted to do and be here and just be an inspiration to people into the community.”
Promised Rest Restaurant is open from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Sundays. It is closed on Saturdays and does not have a closure in the middle of the day.
