We’d like to take the time to address the fact that Dwight and I are retiring. First, we’d like to thank each and every one of you for the love and support that has been shown to us over the 8.5+ years that we have been open. It has been an experience that we will never forget. Dwight has wanted to own his own restaurant since he was a young teenager and his dream was 40 some years in the making but together we helped him realize that dream. It’s been a long hard road (anyone who works in the restaurant industry understands that statement) but also a vastly fulfilling one. We have met so many great people who are now like family. We wanted the restaurant to be a place that people felt like they were at home (could relax but didn’t have to clean up afterwards), a place to come to for a great lunch or after work for a beer or glass of wine and enjoy a great dinner with friends or loved ones. We hope that in your eyes we achieved that. Things have been getting better every year and then 2020 and PANDEMIC! As if that and all the troubles that came along with that weren’t enough, on June 4 Dwight fell and broke both bones in the bottom of his right leg. After almost 3 months in bed (with an external fixator attached to his leg), 2 surgeries, and months of physical therapy we felt he was ready to go back to work. After just a few weeks it became increasingly clear that he was not going to be able to be in the restaurant at his pre-accident level and it takes a hands on owner that is very involved to achieve what we have. The entire summer in bed also gave him lots of time to think of what he/we really wanted in the future. Add to that our youngest daughter who has helped us in the restaurant from the beginning moved to the Thomasville area and took our 2 youngest grandchildren with her! After much soul searching and lots of pain and swelling it became evident that the most Dwight should devote daily to the restaurant was about 6-8 hours and it takes so much more than that. He just couldn’t do it and we are both missing our grandkids something awful. We hand picked Stephen Segrest and his wife Annemarie Edwards to take over the restaurant. They are a long time married couple with 3 kids (much like us) and they share a lot of our values and vision. Stephen is a great guy and has been very instrumental in keeping us open during this age of COVID19. All we ask is that you give them a chance and continue to patronize the restaurant. He is keeping it Burke’s Grill (minus the Burke’s, lol) and has promised to keep our recipes and the majority of our employees (that was a major tipping point for us because we do worry about our employees and their welfare). There of course will be some changes, most for the better. I’m pretty sure that right after the first of the year he plans to open for breakfast every day and not just weekends (PLUS!) and he will start staying open until 9 p.m. M-F again and plans to start opening for Sunday brunch again which we haven’t been able to do with Dwight’s limited mobility. We will still be around for a few more weeks but we have bought a house and are planning to move to Thomasville mid-January. Please come by and see us before we leave and please continue to patronize Burke’s Grill and show Stephen and Annemarie the same love and support that you have shown us over the years. We love you all and will miss you but we’re only a few hours south. Here’s to the next chapter in our lives. We’re only a phone call away.
