“I wanted to own a restaurant ever since I was a kid.”
Tim’s Place, a restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is named after a young man with Down Syndrome, Tim Harris.
Tim calls it “the world’s friendliest restaurant.” He works there six days a week and greets each customer at the door.
For StoryCorps, Tim sat down with his father, Keith, who helped him start the business in 2010.

Wow, another moving story from Story Corps. I especially appreciate their discussion of how each perceived their role as father and son. If I am every in Albuquerque, NM I know exactly where I will be eating. Who doesn't love a great meal with a side of excellent hugs!
