SMITHFIELD, Va. - The Cockeyed Rooster Cafe is switching things up to help make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic.

The cafe had a car group and motorcycle club spend the morning with them as they did a drive-thru smoothie bar, as people waited to pick up their orders.

The cafe also added a dinner menu which they say a lot of customers have been wanting.

"We've had customers for a really long time that have been begging for us to stay open so i think it was a good surprise when we announced we're going to stay open for dinner. We've been trying our best to help out the community. We've been doing a lot of food donations," Michael Christou says.

Cockeyed Rooster Cafe says they've donated to nurses in Suffolk, nursing homes, and first responders. They have also helped out local food distributors.

The cafe tells News 3 they plan to continue offering dinner on the menu once restaurants open up again to make up for lost revenue.
