Last round of memories served up at Herman's

March 10, 2012

A long-standing family business has shut its doors after 52 years.
Herman’s Restaurant, located at 1601 S. Gregg, no longer displays their daily special on the sign outside, instead it simply reads “‘For Sale.”
“There’s not much of a story as to why we are closing,” said Homer Wilkerson, Herman’s Restaurant owner. ““I’m 73 years old and among other factors it had just reached a point where it became too big of a challenge.”
Herman’s had come to be a place that held many memories, not only for the family but also for residents of Big Spring.

“It’s one of your better problems to have, but it’s a problem, nonetheless,” said County Judge Mark Barr, who plans to address the situation with Howard County Commissioners Court members Monday.
“At some point in time, the roads will have to be repaired, so we’re going to address that. It’s time,” said Barr.
