A long-standing family business has shut its doors after 52 years.
Hermanâs Restaurant, located at 1601 S. Gregg, no longer displays their daily special on the sign outside, instead it simply reads ââFor Sale.â
âThereâs not much of a story as to why we are closing,â said Homer Wilkerson, Hermanâs Restaurant owner. ââIâm 73 years old and among other factors it had just reached a point where it became too big of a challenge.â
Hermanâs had come to be a place that held many memories, not only for the family but also for residents of Big Spring.
The good news: The energy boom is providing jobs and a better economy throughout West Texas, including the Crossroads area.
The bad news: The heavy trucks are taking a toll on county roads.

âAt some point in time, the roads will have to be repaired, so weâre going to address that. Itâs time,â said Barr.
