Texas Restaurant That Refused 'Fag' Customers Touted As Gay Bar Online

A Texas restaurant that refused to serve "fag" customers is now getting some positive reviews online for being a "gay bar."

Internet users have taken to Yelp to write reviews about Big Earl's Bait House and Galley Cafe in Pittsburg, Texas, where a waitress told one gay couple not to return because they "don't serve fags here." The waitress who made the homophobic remark is the daughter of owner Earl Cheney, and Cheney defended her sentiment.

After the story broke on local news outlets, people began writing reviews for Big Earl's claiming the Texas restaurant is actually a gay bar. Its Yelp page has been flooded with photos of same-sex couples and an image of the store's billboard has been manipulated to read "Big Gay Al's."

One Yelp review reads: "Lovely place to bring your same-sex partner to and show how much you love him/her as much as their food! The more flamboyant, the better!"

Another says: "On the positive side, it says "Bait House" but the place was more like a Bath House with all the horny Texas cowboys flirting and slapping each other's behinds. Very gay-friendly atmosphere!"

Some in the Dallas LGBT community are planning on visiting the Pittsburg eatery.

“I think it’s a fantastic idea and I’ll be there,” Gary Burns told CBS affiliate KRLD. “There’s no reason not to just go and embrace those people and to love them and hug them and say ‘hey, we’re human beings too.'”

However, others are not in favor of this idea.

“I think that for the homosexual community to be targeting a restaurant and good people is ugly, it is uncalled for. They’re pushing an envelope and they want to not only have tolerance – they want to shove things down our collective throats," Cathie Adams, president of the "pro-family" group Texas Eagle Forum, told KRLD. “As one who has been married for 45 years to my husband, I don’t think that it’s my role to stand in the street corner and start talking about the style of private life my husband and I have.”

There is so much cluelessness, hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness in that paragraph that I literally don't know where to start. Cathie Adams talks more like a fictitious character in an Onion article.

kind of reminds me of some other idiots who bitch about gay people not being in the closet is 'pushing their agenda'. or the moron who thinks that he's fine with gay people ...as long as they aren't openly gay or appear publicly with their partner or want to marry their partner or have a gay sex life...and that particular moron didn't get it that to do the same thing to straight people would mean....denying yourself a sex life, not having a mate or partner, etc etc....equal rights means equal rights...not just we won't beat your ass up on friday nights
