A surprising act by a Smokey Bones diner shocked a large family while out to eat.

Shared with us by 97ZOK fan Amber, she said:

Kindness alert! Just now at Smokey Bones on E State St. A very sweet married couple came up to myself, husband, 2 kids, and 2 other family members. They offered to pay for our meal and handed us a $100 bill. Our total was over $98 and I believe they deserve to be recognized. We were all so shocked all we could say was thank you. All they told us was that someone else had been kind to them and they were paying it forward. Thank you so much!

The message was sent to the 97ZOK Facebook on Sunday night.
