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 hes seen his sales treble.
Mr Simons put up the No speak English. No service sign in March and says hes received great support - with some people asking for souvenir copies to take home .

I think the owner can do what ever he wants this is" AMERICA" and its not just Mexicans its all none English speaking ppl or just don't want to speak English they have it on us because not one damn thing can be done I just wish the ones that take up for them would go to there country and try any of this SHIT those ppl would kill them or put them in jail to rape and starve to death . Its ok to be good ppl but stupid

I still remember signs that said no blacks allowed no Mexicans allowed and no dogs allowed. In actuality the same sentiment of racism is felt by some people today but is a little less accentuated but has the same old connotation. I have no problem with speaking English but this is done with bad motives.
God not only blesses America but anybody who works righteousness

I do agree that if one is going to live here they should learn the English language. However, the attitude of learn English or get the hell out is quite assinine. With the lack of knowledege of proper use of English most of Americans would have to leave. The country talk....ebonics.....yuppie lingo....all of the other totally ignorant ways of speaking should fall into the same category. Most people in this country have no clue how to speak proper english and use words that do not exist. Examples...I threw the ball...not I throwed....I ahve already eaten....not I already ate.....English learn it use it properly or get out...not "git" out. Nothing is more stupid than listening to a redneck or someone from the hood talk. Both are equally ignorant.
