Two men with a gun robbed the Huddle House in Hazard around 4 Tuesday morning.
Randall Kyle Mullins and Brandon Combs allegedly told an employee to hand over money or there would be trouble.
Employees say it could've been much worse if their co-worker didn't think fast.
Some folks believe drugs was the reason for the robbery.
Others say the restaurant's location and hours make it an easy target for robbers.
Police caught Mullins and Combs right down the road from Huddle House.
Both men are being held at the Kentucky River Regional jail on first degree robbery charges.
