A recently closed restaurant in Texas is claiming that it had nothing to do with an angrily worded sign in which area residents are not portrayed flatteringly. But some people believe the eatery is only distancing itself from the sign because an attempt at humor backfired.

First thing I thought of...Amy.
Has he met that Amy’s Bakery lady? They’d get along swell
What about me?
How difficult is it to whip up some pasta?
***The angry tone, the implication that Amarillo residents dont like good food, ****
Why eat pasta when you can have STEAK! at the BIG TEXAN! or several other places.
Is it Denny’s? That would be ironic. You barely get off the sheisse list with the negros, then you go and insult the rednecks!
Free speech....Only kidding...being nice is never wrong....
They should move to Austin. The stoners aren’t too picky when they have the munchies.
A democrat is still a democrat by any other name....
On the other hand, with attitudes like that the food must really have sucked. Thus, they aren't Italian and must be from New Jersey, blue-blood transplants trying to change Texas' colors and blaming everyone else for their own failures (no offense to New Jersey conservative-Italians).
That picture doesn’t look right to me, as if the wording was shopped in over the photo.
could this Possibly Be Homosexual SABOTAGE?
A friend of mine says that a steakhouse that has the word "Texas" in its name or a variant, such as the Texaz Grill in Phoenix, usually serves good steaks. By that criterion, the Big Texan should be a good place to have dinner.
I just forwarded this to my son. He lives in Dallas but is working in Amarillo. He would agree with you, there is good steak in Amarillo.
Folks, I live in rural Texas that is growing exponentially, I’ve seen numerous numerous food eating places go out of business. Hey, it’s a risk Some survive and others don’t that’s the risk you take.
An Italian restaurant, in Amarillo?????
This reminds me of Bogey’s kine in “Casablanca”:
“I came here for the water.”
“Rick, you are in the desert! There is no water.”
“Oh, I guess I was misinformed.”
The owners must have mistaken Amarillo, for some bastion of liberalism.
“being nice is never wrong”
I wouldn’t bet against it. One thing’s for sure: they were democrats. With a mouth that dirty, it had to be.
After all, the New Jersey state bird is the upraised middle finger.
“You got a problem with that? Hey, I’m talking to you!!”
I think of the closing monologue from “Goodfellas”....
“Can’t even get decent food - right after I got here, I ordered some spaghetti with marinara sauce, and I got egg noodles and ketchup. I’m an average nobody... get to live the rest of my life like a schnook.”
Ha! Me too.
I’m called that here all the time
I love the abuse
Ain’t that the truth.
Boil some water and put some noodles in it. After a little bit, throw a couple of noodles up against the wall. If they stick, the noodles are ready to eat.
(I hope that didn’t sound to redneck. :))
At first glance it does. However, the distortion from line-to-line is inconsistent with a paste-in.
IMHO the distortion is from a legitimate image. Lousy phone camera though, akin to the one I had on my last Blackberry. Looks a lot like the images I captured myself.
Based on all the reviews I read of the owner, the cries of ‘hack’ & ‘fake’ sound like damage control after a friend said, “You did WHAT????!!!”
Latest from their FB page:
Cara Russell: And you are obviously WRONG. Just been proven by a former employee that the owner posted it on the door as a joke, took a pic and sent it to all his employees then replaced it with the other sign everyone is claiming was used as a photoshop.
That sure sounds like an MSNBC-Watching, DailyKos/AlterNet lib, doesn’t it!
Inspector Louie:And what brings you to Casablanca Rick? Embezzle the church funds and run off with a senators wife or did you commit murder’’? “I’d like to think you killed someone but thats the romantic in me’’. Rick: “I came for the waters’’
Louie: “Waters?’’ “What waters, we’re in the desert’’.
Rick;, “I guess I was misinformed’’.
Sshhh. They’re not supposed to know.
Wheeeew, that’s just plain nasty. Buh-bye!
Me too - over a hunnert or so...
“I think of the closing monologue from Goodfellas....

In New Orleans, I asked for a plate of spaghetti ... the gum-smacking idiot copy of Flo the waittress, actually asked me: “Do you want the red sauce or the white?”
Sometimes the food is pretty good, usually it is average at best. The restaurants often close when their 3 year lease on profitability is up, or sell out to another family member and start again.
Rumor of money laundering, illegal immigration and fraud, employee abuse and tax dodging are common.
In Waxahachie TX there is a Sicilian restaurant that is quite good. Never ask his opinion on the other “Italian” restaurants in the area - you will get an earful. Of course, as I now know, there is a major difference between Sicilian and Italian cooking.
Let me guess they are liberals
There exist scant few devious militant activists there be amongst “gay “ republicans. This sure smells of the uber bitter “gay” leftist handbook.
You know? They were! I’ve forgotten now where I saw i a photo (if I see it again, I’ll come back & post a link) It was 5 or 6 guys- *definitely* lefties. Not flaming, really, but eh & hipster types. I’m sure they’d be much happier someplace other than (I forget if it was Abilene or) Amarillo. Maybe Frisco.
What was wrong with it?
Albanians ain’t Italians. Maybe 40 miles of water separate them. But they ain’t Italian.
But in many parts of the country they open Italian restaurants, much like Greeks did a few generations ago.
The younger children may get culturally assimilated, but it is off to a rocky start.
Greeks and Italians were Orthodox and Catholic, most Albanians that I know are Muslim or nothing.
Found it. (the photo of the proprietors)
This might be a hint, Safetgiver. Another might be their menu. Not that we are unsophisticated, but this is seriously pretentious *cuisine*. (I would NOT like to think of the tomatoes in my sauce being “hand crushed” by any of these guys. Ewww!)
After viewing the photo of the staff....I sense that they meant every word in their goodbye love poem..
Most definitely. How they wound up in Amarillo (of all places) is beyond me.
they saw what they thought was an opportunity to turn a QUICK BUCK...and were sadly mistaken
Im not certain that I can SPELL Hoytee Toytee properly... But i do know that I have not been n ANY restaurant that dresses up a quarter ounce of fish selling for fifty bucks...in years
I sense these jackasses misjudged the market!
LOL But in *Amarillo*? Maybe Houston, DFW or Austin...except there’s too much competition. I’d have enjoyed being a fly on the wall in that place.
I’m not sure (I should know this cause I read a lot of 19th century British stuff). It’s either hoitie-toitie to hoity-toity...& neither one looks right (looking at them) I *think* it’s the latter.
:-) But yeah. That sums it up. How far have we fallen as a society when guys like this are part of the “upper crust”?
Obama by “virtue of his being Installed as President is now ...considered a part of that “upper crust”. ALL bets are off as to who else might qualify given the ever so HIGH Standards that must be met in order to join such .....ranks...
God Deliver Us!
Isn’t that the truth. I have a little trouble sympathizing with all the libs in Martha’s Vineyard now that the Jet Set President & his lovely entourage have joined the fun. They wanted him? Well, now they’ve got him.
What a display.
