SONORA, Calif. (CNN) -- Two senior citizens showed a small town in northern California that nobody is too old to show a lover their affection.
Just make sure it's not in a parking lot -- and definitely not in the middle of the day.
Doc's Smoked BBQ and Burgers in Sonora is known for its great Texas barbecue.
"My favorite, I'd have to say, it's like between the tri tip and the chicken," said owner Rachael Shevlin.
She runs the family restaurant and cooks with love. But it was a different kind of love that caught Shevlin's attention on Tuesday.
It was love making. In the parking lot. In a car. In the middle of the day.
"It gets hot back here and it was, obviously, getting hot out there," Shevlin said.
She went outside and saw a couple celebrating Valentine's Day a little early -- and without any clothes.
When police walked up to the car they didn't find a couple of spring chickens. Instead, they found a 62-year-old man and a 72-year-old woman trying to spice up their life.
Police wrote the parking lot lovers a ticket while Shevlin and her co-workers shared a good laugh from inside the restaurant.
News of the senior sizzle got mixed reactions around the small California town.
Shevlin said she isn't mad about the fooling around, but wonders if she'll see the couple again. After all, the guy involved is a regular customer.
"Yeah, it might be a little awkward. We might all be like 'you go deal with him, no you go deal with him.'" she said.
