Catching Up With C&D’S Tekoa Bar & Grill

The Tekoa Chamber of Commerce is proud of its businesses. Farms, industrial, brick and mortar, home-based, service-oriented, food … we’ve got it all. To celebrate these hard-working establishments, we will feaure different ones on our website blog from time to time.

We recently visited with C&D’s Bar & Grill LLC, located on Crosby Street, just across the parking lot from the Tekoa Market. C&D’s is a favorite hangout where one can find food, spirits, and new friends. The Chamber appreciates all that C&D’s has done to hang in there for our community through a crazy year.

Impact of the Corona Virus

One year ago, 3/17/2020, we rolled into take-out only. Dine in and beverage service were not allowed by the mandated regulations. This can be devastating to a restaurant in a small town, and we never anticipated this situation. Regulations were implanted that we have had no control over and which seem to change as soon as we get used to them, so we’ve had to make quick adjustments.

The Corona virus certainly has challenged us all, however, we feel blessed to live and own a business in such a caring, supportive area. We strongly felt that we needed to keep our employees employed, and give them as many hours as possible. With community support, we have been able to offer food continuously during the pandemic, and will continue to do so.

A New Look

While closed to in-restaurant dining we took advantage of the down time by doing extensive cleaning, disinfecting and spiffing up. This meant that everything was taken off the walls and deep-cleaned. A big thank you to C&D’S staff for stepping up and working hard on this and other projects! 

Some of the improvements are behind the scenes, and others you will notice when you walk in the door. For example, the beer cooler got a new compressor system, including re-running the lines to utilize the space more efficiently. A couple of pieces of equipment failed, therefore we purchased a new refrigerator and pizza prep table. The floor we installed eleven years ago was showing wear and tear from all of those late night dance sessions(!), so we replaced part of the floor with new vinyl planking. We also acquired “new to us” tables and chairs throughout the dining area. So classy!

All of these upgrades were completed during lots of late night hours because we determined to not close for any days.

Finally, check out of the wall with beverage signage! We replaced the burnt out bulbs with new energy efficient LED lights. Cal’s Christmas present was a precision, locally-made sign with C&D’S logo “Where the Plowin’ Gets Done”.

Looking Ahead

We look forward to seeing our customers and serving you in-person and for carry out. We hope that some of the events that we have had the privilege of hosting and catering will be able to take place in 2021, and we hope you consider us for your food and beverage needs!

Thank you! C&D’S appreciates and feels so grateful for the continued support.

We miss catering special events and look forward to the day when we can return to serving our friends and neighbors during their special celebrations.
