This Is America's Favorite Chain Restaurant, According to Report
Across America, cities are struggling with the realities of how to reopen dine-in restaurants during an ongoing pandemic. But back when “coronavirus” wasn’t quite part of our vocabularies, America was already on its way to crowning a new favorite sit-down restaurant chain—at least according to the American Consumer Satisfaction Index. ACSI has just released its annual look at major brands across the dining spectrum, and this year, LongHorn Steakhouse has topped the full-service list.
Last year, Texas Roadhouse claimed the top spot for the second year in a row, having knocked off the 2017 champ, Cracker Barrel. But this year, after significant drops from both Texas Roadhouse and Cracker Barrel...

Mother Denied Service Because Of Her Son’s ‘Athletic’ Clothes Hires Civil Rights Attorney
Following the apology by a Baltimore restaurant, after the manager refused service to a Black woman, Marcia Grant, and her son, Dallas, because of his “athletic” clothes, the mother has retained a civil rights attorney.

After employees receive threats, one city is forced to nix rule requiring face masks in businesses
An emergency proclamation requiring face masks in stores and restaurants in Stillwater, Oklahoma, was nixed after store and restaurant owners received threats.
The proclamation was issued Thursday. Among other things, the order made businesses require patrons to cover their faces to combat the spread of coronavirus.
But on Friday, Mayor Will Joyce softened the rule to encourage, not require, face coverings, after several reports emerged of employees being verbally abused and being threatened with physical violence while trying to enforce the order -- all in just three hours of the rule going into effect.
"Many of those with objections cite the mistaken belief the requirement is unconstitutional, and under their theory, one cannot be forced to wear a mask. No law or court supports this view," said City Manager Norman McNickle in a statement. "It is further distressing that these people, while exercising their believed rights, put others at risk."
McNickle went on to explain the importance of face coverings in preventing the spread of coronavirus. The masks have been recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Is It Ethically Okay to Get Food Delivered Right Now?
Unless you produce your own food, some combination of you and other humans has to transport it from wherever it’s made to your stomach. In normal circumstances, most people don’t dwell much on that fact, but during a pandemic, it makes deciding just how to procure sustenance highly fraught: Because every option comes with potential negative consequences for you and others—cashiers, shelf stockers, delivery people, restaurant workers, and so on—it can seem like there’s no right way to get dinner.
For example, is it better to cook at home or get food from a restaurant? Getting takeout means leaving the house and potentially spreading or catching the coronavirus (and ordering delivery means shifting that risk onto someone else). Meanwhile, sticking to your own kitchen is safer for everyone involved—but it means not financially supporting workers and businesses that may desperately need the money. And if you cook, you still have to get groceries somehow, which again means either you or someone else going outside to transport the food.
McDonald’s Workers File $500 Million Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
On Monday, two women in Sanford, Florida filed a $500 million sexual harassment lawsuit against McDonald's, in hopes of addressing the company's alleged “systemic sexual harassment problem.” Jamelia Fairley, 24, who currently works at the Sanford, Florida location and Ashley Reddick, 28, a former employee, filed their class action lawsuit at a federal court in Chicago, Illinois, where McDonald’s headquarters is located. According to a press release detailing their suit, the two plaintiffs are seeking damages on behalf of not only themselves, but 5,000 women working at more than 100 corporate-run McDonald’s restaurants in Florida as of 2016.
Chicago Man Killed Himself and a Woman After Fearing They Had Coronavirus, Police Say
Police say a man in the Chicago area shot himself and a woman in his apartment after fearing both had the new coronavirus, The Chicago Tribune reports. Will County Sheriff’s deputies found the bodies of Patrick Jesernik, 54, and Cheryl Schriefer, 59, during a welfare check Saturday that had been requested by Jesernik’s family, who had not heard from him. Family members said Jesernik had been afraid that he was suffering from COVID-19 and that Schriefer had been having trouble breathing. Tests for COVID-19 came back negative for both after the apparent murder-suicide. The prohibition of any group larger than 10 people to slow the spread of the coronavirus has stymied recovery and domestic violence prevention efforts across the world.

Jimmy John's Accused by FDA of Serving Food Linked to E. Coli and Salmonella Outbreaks
Certain vegetables served by Jimmy John’s have been linked to multiple cases of E. Coli and Salmonella spanning the past seven years, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Viral Video Shows Wendy's Employee Bathing in Restaurant Kitchen Sink
A Florida man's viral "prank" has cost him his job.
Earlier this week, a Facebook user shared a video of an unidentified young man taking a bath in a Wendy's kitchen. The clip shows the individual stripping down to his shorts, and hopping into the sud-filled sink as uniformed employees watch and egg him on.
"Go, go, go, go, oh shit," the person behind the camera is heard saying. "Take a bath. Take a bath. Get in there [...] Wash your armpits."
Restaurant Closed After Video Showed Owner Washing Kitchen Equipment in a Lake
Old Hickory, Tennessee's No. 1 Chinese Restaurant has pretty decent reviews, save for a Yelp comment from last year claiming its food has a "hint taste [sic] of soap or some other type of cleaner." It turns out, however, that when it comes to washing, that might be the least of the restaurant's problems.
Lance Glover and his girlfriend were visiting the nearby Old Hickory Lake yesterday, when they saw the restaurant's owners in the lake, scrubbing down kitchen supplies. In a video that Glover shared with FOX17 Nashville and posted on Facebook, someone is crouched down in the water cleaning a rack, followed by a second person who brings along plastic containers.

Popeyes Launches Fried Chicken Sandwich by Teaming Up With Restaurant That Ripped Them Off
Two years ago, a small Southern-themed restaurant in Long Beach, California became a national media fixation when the owner got busted for reheating Popeyes fried chicken tenders and serving them to customers as part of a “chicken and waffles” special without disclosing the origin of that first ingredient. And now, in a bizarre but marketing-savvy twist, Popeyes is teaming up with the #popeyesgate restaurant — Sweet Dixie Kitchen — to help launch a new product.
A restaurant in Arizona has labeled its entire salad menu as 'My Girlfriend's Not Hungry'
The tired cliché is as follows: When a heterosexual couple eats at a restaurant, the woman will claim she isn't hungry, order nothing, then pick at the man's food for the rest of the meal. To combat this fictitious scenario, some restaurants offer "My Girlfriend Isn't Hungry" menu options, which usually include additional french fries or other side dishes.
The Tipsy Coyote, however, does things a little differently — it has an entire menu of salads under the label, in an attempt to gender leafy greens.
Restaurant Temporarily Closed After Decomposing Body Leaked Through Its Ceiling
In late May, Officer Ryan Wilder was called to an apartment in Windsor, Connecticut, after a woman reported that she hadn’t seen or heard from her neighbor in a few days. On his way into the building, a worker from Siam Corner Thai Kitchen stopped him, and asked if he could check out the restaurant, too: there was a strong smell in the kitchen and a strange liquid was leaking through the ceiling.
If you know where this is going, then congratulations on finishing all 14 seasons of Criminal Minds. “I went into the restaurant and discovered a reddish brown substance dripping from the ceiling located behind the front counter of the restaurant,” Officer Wilder wrote in his incident report. “It appeared that the dripping substance was possibly blood.”

The video, shot at a Burger King located in the Jacksonville area, shows the employee using the mop on the table before going back to using it on the floor.
NBC affiliate WBBH-TV reports the company released a statement apologizing for the actions of the employee, calling it “unacceptable” but did not say if that worker had been disciplined.
