“One way to help the current fight for equality is to support our city’s black-owned restaurants and businesses,” Jacksonville Restaurant Reviews wrote on its website.

On its Instagram, 904 Happy Hour featured in a post called “Black Owned Eats in Jax” businesses like Farmhouse Chicken & Donuts, Honey Dripper Hutt and Khloe’s Kitchen.
