Shooters Grill is located in Rifle, Colorado and an honor to the city’s name
The waitresses are all packing heat and the menu is much of the same
Shotgun shells for shakers Smith and Wesson Grilled Cheese
A marketing ploy or a sign of an underlying gun toting culture disease
A burger is part of the American scene just like Apple Pie
But servers packing visible heat as the food passes by?
Wonder if the guns are loaded, safety on or empty and only for show
Before sampling the cuisine would be something many a diner would want to know
One thing is for certain with a server one must never flirt
Good way to be staring at a Glock and to get hurt
Even though the burgers may be delicious and half pound thick
Something about guns and dining that seems a little sick
Maybe the image is part of the gun toting American West
This diner would rather give that image a rest
Whatever happened to the TV Westerns where at the town’s gate
The cowboys checked their guns before entering the saloons where pleasures would await?
Wonder what kind of background checks a server must endure
So the patrons’ safety will be insured?
Is the slogan at the Grill, “Great burgers we fry.
Don’t leave a tip and you will die”?
