Several customers at Savannah restaurant offer to buy veteran's meal

A photo taken at a Texas Roadhouse in Savannah has quickly gone viral. 

The picture was shared on Facebook by "Love What Matters" on Sunday.

The post reads:

"Last evening, my mom and I were walking into Texas Roadhouse in Savanah, GA. when we noticed a man sitting on the outside patio. He had long hair, a long gray beard, and was wearing a jacket with war vet badges. With every person who walked into the restaurant, he very kindly said 'hi, how are you all tonight?' or 'bye, I hope you have a good night.' Most people reacted to him, others completely ignored him. That didn't stop him from greeting every person who walked by. When we sat down at our booth, the same man was sitting across from us eating his meal, smiling at everyone around him. The young waiter in the photo had all the patience in the world, he stopped to talk to this man, smiled and laughed with him and listened to stories about his life. My mom and I flagged the manager down and told him we wanted to pay for this kind man's meal when he proudly said 'ma'am, someone else already has.' Everyone in the section grinned when the waiter told him that his meal was covered. The man then left, telling everyone on the way out that he hoped they had a good night."
