It's Don Imus's favorite burger joint....FAT HO Burgers
Fat Ho Burgers might seem to some like an unusual name for a restaurant, but its owner has defended her choice after coming under fire from local businesses in Waco, Texas. Lakita Evans is the mastermind behind the burger joint and its unconventional name, and said she had no intention of causing offence.
'It's not calling people a ho. It's just like they say, "Oooh that ho is big," or, "That ho is tight!"' she said. Other local business owners don't see it that way and the 23-year-old entrepreneur has come under criticism from the nearby Gospel Cafe, an eatery and bookshop run by religious volunteers.
Pastor Marsha Martie said: 'Would've been nice to think a little more sensitively.' However, Ms Evans has defended the Fat Ho Cafe, which counts Sloppy Ho Brisket and Supa Dupa Fly Ho with Chz among its specials. And for the younger Fat Ho customers, there's Tiny Ho Meals.
Luckily for Evans, the publicity surrounding her controversial burger joint has reportedly been great for business. This week they ran out of change, and then beef.
