Maria Elena Barragan was serving at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant in Rogers, Arkansas. She had just finished up serving David Harrison and Shelia Harrison during her double shift.
The couple, who are regulars at the restaurant, asked to talk to Barragan after the meal. Barragan told NWA Democrat-Gazette that she thought "she was in trouble." They pulled up some seats at the table and told her how much they appreciated and loved her. They handed her a gift bag with papers and keys to a 2019 Buick Encore in her name.
Barragan refused to take it, but David told her to take it "because Got led [him] to do it."
