Karley Barnard, a server at the Marietta Fish
Market, a sister restaurant to the Marietta Diner, said
in an era of uncertainty and layoffs for many restaurant
workers, she’s happy that Tselios has chosen to
keep his employees working.
“I think he’s doing a great job. He’s trying to keep
us all employed and give us an opportunity (to work),”
said Barnard, a part-time server and Kennesaw State
University student. “I love (the drive-thru). It’s really
helping the community.”
Marietta resident Tenicia Appleby said the free
meals are a godsend for many who are just trying to
“They are doing something good for the community,”
she said. “Some people have already spent a lot
of money on groceries ... and some people can’t work
and they’re out of jobs until we don’t know when.”
Appleby, a nurse at an east Cobb senior living
facility, said she’s continued to have to go to work,
despite fears that she could endanger her family if she
catches the coronavirus without knowing it. As she
pulled up to order, she said while she loves her job, she
was happy to have the day off.
Betty Cooper, a Smyrna resident, said when she
found out about Marietta Diner’s free meal promotion,
she loaded the car with two grandsons, a niece
and a nephew and headed down. Every person in the
car received a meal.
“I appreciate this so very much because there’s a
lot of people that’s going hungry with the corona(virus)
thing that’s going on. And it’s just so touching to
see that they care,” she said.
By 3 p.m., Marietta Diner’s drive-thru became
paid, but it had already served about 2,500 free meals
by then, totaling about 3,000 through the two days.
Tselios said staff is also taking orders and payment
from the drive-thru lanes.
The drive-thru service will continue 24/7, and the
diner will be serving a limited menu with rotating
specials, Tselios said.
