Meet the Allens. They’ve been running their family business for over 60 years.

This touching video, created by photojournalists from UNC Chapel Hill, gives us a glimpse into a day in the life of the Allen family. Their restaurant, Community Drive-In, has fed generations of regulars in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. It’s a place where people gather, share meals, and feel at home. It’s also home to a hot dog they’ve dubbed “world-famous… until proven otherwise.”

Patsy, a waitress, knows her family has something special that makes working together a labor of love. “Some people say, ‘You can’t work for family.’ If it weren’t for family, we’d be in a mess.”

That bond couldn’t be clearer. It’s plain to see: the Allens will be feeding their community for years to come.
