SOUTHAVEN, MS -
(WMC TV) - SERVER OF THE WEEK: Cody Volz, Maria's Cantina, 6717 Airways Boulevard, Southaven, MS, (662) 772-5926
Her memory for customers' favorite drinks and dishes makes you think of Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man.
'Of course, Cody Volz is an excellent server.'
"The second time we walked into this restaurant, Cody remembered us from the first," said Shirley Blankenship of Southaven. She and her husband Michael nominated Volz as the Scorecard'sServer of the Week.
"She went directly and got what we asked for the first time," continued Blankenship. "She said, 'You want the same?' and we said, 'Yes!'"
Volz, a lifelong resident of Southaven, has a savant's memory for regulars -- and for what they order.
She's quick on her feet (ask my photographer -- he's was out of breath trying to keep up with her), and she has a smile that will make you order one more margarita.
"She keeps everything fun," said Maria's Cantina's General Manager Grant Whipple.
"This little lady is a godsend to this place," said Shirley's husband Michael. "If she treats half her customers like she treats us, then this place will burst right open."
"They take care of me, so I take care of them," said Volz.
There's that smile again.
I'm ordering dessert.
