The Saga of The Fat Ho

A new Texas restaurant called 'Fat Ho Burgers' has caused quite a stir in one Waco neighbourhood, drawing criticism from a nearby Christian cafe and book store run by volunteers.

However, despite the critics, Fat Ho's is booming with its 'pimped' out menu options including the super fly ho with cheese, sloppy ho brisket and even Tiny Ho meals for the kids.

Run by 23-year-old Lakita Evans, Ho's has queues out of the door at lunch times and has garnered good write ups from the critics.

Miss Evans, who worked her way through college to pay the set up costs for the restaurant, defended the name.
Speaking to Fox News 26, she said: 'Itís not calling people a ho. Itís just like they say, 'Oooh that ho is big,' or, 'That ho is tight!í'.

As well as defining 'ho', Miss Evans added the name was a way of cheering up customers weighed down bythe gravity of current events.

'Look whatís going on in Japan. Itís like clear this world is not gonna get any better. Why cry and be depressed,' she added.

'The economy is bad. Somebody gotta keep a sense of humour around here.'

Despite being a hit with the customers, the nearby Gospel Cafe and book shop has taken exception to the name.  

Pastor Marsha Martie, who volunteers at the quiet neighbourhood establishment, said: 'I wish they would have had a more sensitive name.
'That would have been nice to think a little more sensibly.'
