'No speak English. No service' sign leads to Reedy Creek Diner restaurant's sales TRIPLING

May 23, 2011 | Posted by: Agent of Chaos | Full story: www.dailymail.co.uk

Some chefs spend their lifetimes unsuccessfully slogging away to improve business.

But all it took for Reedy Creek Diner chef Greg Simons in Lexington, North Carolina, was to put up a controversial language sign and he’s seen his sales treble.

Mr Simons put up the ‘No speak English. No service’ sign in March and says he’s received great support - with some people asking for souvenir copies to take home .

Why shouldn't this guy be allowed to choose what language he want's his customers to order in HIS restaurant?
Are there any laws saying that he has to take orders in any language besides English?
It's also HIS choice whether or not to serve someone in his place of business.
If someone doesn't like his choice then they are more than welcome to go elsewhere.

Apparently a bunch of North Carolinians, like most other Americans, will jump at the chance to dine somewhere without having to eat with illegal mexiholes.

English is the offical language in North Carolina so why is there a problem?
The Spanish speaking should learn to speak English not the other way around.

He can request people order in English but he cannot refuse service to non English speakers.

Amen to that, the Asians now how to cater to their customers. If they cannot understand you then they'll go in the kitchen and get you a translator.

But watch out, you treat them bad and they'll give you the special ingredient, cream of sum yung nip.

Just because you chose to support those here illegally over law abiding hard working American citizens doesnt mean you have to make an ass out of yourself in the process. Traitor.

Actually he can, he just can't say that's the reason why.
