Many were smiling at the Old Chicago restaurant off I-25's Woodmen exit in Colorado Springs as patrons got an unexpected surprise as they came in to dine on Saturday.
Three Special Olympians greeted customers while the El Paso Sheriff's Office officers waited on tables.
The event is called 'Tip a Cop.' The event raises money for the Special Olympics, and 100% of the donations remain in the region to support local Special Olympians.
Officers are serving at three of the Old Chicago restaurants in Colorado Springs while military members are participating in the location downtown.
They will be there until 8pm today.
