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.
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!"'
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.
However, Ms Evans has defended the Fat Ho Café. The economy is bad somebody got to keep a sense of humor around here,' she said.
The burger restaurant, which serves the Quadruple Bypass Burger and Flatline Fries, hit the headlines after saying anyone weighing over 350 pounds could eat for free.
