Kilgore, Tx (KETK) — The Kilgore Fire Department is just a couple of weeks away from completing their Firehouse Bar & Grill at the Meadowbrook Country Club.
Firefighters have been putting their own sweat and blood into the renovations of the restaurant, last week most of the painting was completed as well as a new floor. They have torn down walls, lighting, added t.v's and a whole new bar. The bar and tables and chairs were even built by hand by one of the firefighters. Since the bar and grill no longer belongs to the country club it will be open to the public, firefighter Blake Barker tells KETK's Alexandra Carter he hopes the new grill will create a sense of community between firefighters and the community.
" I hope they see the..pride and tradition the fire department and how much has been put into it..and hope they enjoy it and like the atmosphere."
Items on the menu will all have a fire theme, but that doesn't mean everything will be spicy.
A grand opening will be held at 5 o'clock on February 28th at Meadowbrook Country Club in Kilgore.
