Restaurant's Appeal Seems Predicated Upon Its Controversial Appellation Rather Than The Quality Of Its Comestibles

"But while the name will get you in the door, the food won’t necessarily keep you coming back. 'Supa Fly Ho with Cheese' was not especially juicy—or fatty, as the restaurant’s name would suggest—and the patty itself was almost charred."
New Waco, TX eatery Fat Ho Burgers—where menu items include "the Bad Mamajama, the Fat Chicken Ho, the Sloppy Ho brisket sandwich and, curiously, A Fat Ho Named Bertha"—has been receiving widespread publicity since its recent opening (and inspiring the classic bit of local news you see above), but the actual cuisine leaves the experts unimpressed.

Did that wheelchair at the end have spinners?

Uh, guys, I think we all know the REAL story even if the government denies it. The patty was charred by the FBI! They set the fire intentionally!!!

Not to be undersold, the Gospel Cafe is now serving Bloody Mary Magdalenes.

There is just no way to comment on this post and come away smelling like roses.

The owner seemed quite charming and clientele good natured.

Agree completely. Gospel Cafe was civil about the whole thing, too. This was a nice small business story and I wish them well. Also: I want a cheeseburger now.
