"We came to lansing in 1966," said Denver Harless.
It's been a staple in the Lansing community for forty seven years, and this morning, Jon's Country Burgers on South Cedar, opened it's doors for the last time.
"We've been at it long enough. We've enjoyed every hour of it but, it's time," said Harless who is closing the restaurant to retire.
Harless says not much has changed since the beginning. The basic menu's stayed the same, still including their signature favorite –the country burger.
But it's not just the burger recipe that made the place unique. Customers can place orders by calling through a phone placed near every table and booth. Harless, himself, answers most of the calls personally.
"It's just like coming home," said Beverly Phillips. She and her husband have been regulars since 1966.
"We wish them well, we're going to miss them," said Phillips.
The family environment extends beyond customers. Carly Morris started working as a waitress in high school. Nine years later, with a full time job, she came back to work weekends.
"I stuck around because i love the people. I've gotten to know the regular customers like they were my family," Morris said.
Harless says the time is right to close their doors, but that won't make it any easier to say goodbye.
"The community's supported us over the years--it's just a wonderful feeling to have people respect you that much," Harless said.
