Pickles goes extra mile for first responders

Pickles goes extra mile for first responders

An Odessa business is being praised for how it treats first responders.

At Pickles Restaurant & Bar, which has locations at 4301 E. 42nd St. and 2901 E I-20 in Odessa, all first responders enjoy a daily discount of 15 percent, according to the City of Odessa, which recently highlighted the charitable business. Also, Pickles deems Wednesday as First Responder Appreciation Day.

Tisdale, sisters and co-owners Tammie and Donna agree on this special.

“Not everyone is cut out to do those jobs,” co-owner Jamie Tisdale told the city, adding they would feed them for free if they could afford it.

“The first responders leave their families at home when rushing to an emergency,” Donna said. “They put their life on the line every time they take that call and they do it without hesitation.”
