 What is Tim's Place?

Tim's Place is a unique full service restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico serving breakfast and lunch. Our slogan captures exactly who we are and what you can expect when you visit us!

 Tim's Place: World's Friendliest Restaurant

Breakfast, Lunch, and Hugs
The key to our concept is the customer service experience. We
believe that people have a huge appetite for being genuinely welcomed, connected with, touched, appreciated, and genuinely cared for. We believe too many experiences in our busy modern lives are impersonal, sterile, and devoid of genuine human connection. You won't find that at Tim's Place.

 The management and staff of Tim's Place work as "team members". When you visit Tim's Place we're sure you will have a positive, unforgettable experience.

 Who is Tim?

Tim Harris serves as the inspiration for our unique restaurant concept. You can learn more about Tim by visiting our "About Tim" section.

 We hope to see you at Tim's Place this week!!!

 You can now enjoy your breakfast or lunch at Tim's Place outside on the front Patio!!

 Tim was featured on AOL.com's video series You've Got.

 Tim Harris and his father Keith were featured as the Father's Day story in the On The Road with Steve Hartman segment of the CBS Evening News.

That's great, but your post title is very misleading. Visiting a restaurant with capable special needs adults isn't really comparable to raising a special needs child to adulthood.

That's great and all but I still couldn't and wouldn't be able to handle a sn child.

I agree. 

As a mom with two with DS, I get it. Some people REALLY aren't up to raising a child with SN. You can't hold that against someone.

I know people who are NOT special needs and they can't hold down a full time job, let alone run their own restaurant.

Watching my boys interact. One SN, one not. They ARE best buddies.

I admire you for it. I admire anyone who does it. When people say that they're not saying that special needs people can't be a joy or that they should always be avoided. Simply that raising children with special needs, especially low functioning is a challenge that many of us can't handle. I only have one healthy toddler and he's a handful. I cannot imagine some of the struggles you must go through on a day to day basis.
