To provide a real service, you must add something that can't be bought or measured with money. That's sincerity and integrity. At Mak Mama's Coney Cafe, we strive to be a charitable restaurant that's known for our delicious Coney Island food and compassionate staff.
Our local restaurant in Killeen, TX goes above and beyond by:
Mak MaMa's Coney Cafe is not only a restaurant but a "community initiative" to help feed the food-insecure among us. We pride ourselves on being of service to others right in our own community by adopting good practices of giving back in the same community that supports us. We host Walk-Out Wednesdays to take a variety of hot food items from our menu out to feed the homeless in our community free of charge. We are also honored to partner with all our first responders and front-line workers and offer daily discounts to medical workers, educators, police officers, firefighters, and service workers in addition to offering them TWO for Tuesdays. We also offer them free drinks on Thirsty Thursdays with a food purchase. When we have job openings, we work with the homeless population among us to first offer them the open positions to help them get off the streets, make their own money, and become the next group of "community builders and givers," because it's important to always help the less fortunate right among us. Each and every one of us could be one meal away from food insecurity and/or one paycheck away from homelessness.
