Americans take their eating seriously.
I can relate. If I go to an ‘all you can eat’ buffet, I consider it a personal challenge to make sure I do the ‘all you can eat’ part justice.
Don’t tell me I have free reign unless you really mean it.
Golden Corral is a popular restaurant chain dotted across the US that promises “endless buffets”, and one Pennsylvania outlet has been in the news this week after footage of a brawl went viral.
The cause? There are mixed reports on this front, with some stating that it began when the buffet ran out of steak.
Here’s The New York Post:
“There was a shortage of steak and two parties were involved and one family cut in front of another family,” [Gavin] Lauretta told KYW-TV in Philadelphia.
“They were taking their time and they ran out of steak and it got into a heated exchange at the tables.”
Let’s watch the chaos unfold:

‘Hangry’ comes to mind.
A spokesman for Golden Corral has denied that the chain ran out of steak, reports The Washington Post:
The spokesman couldn’t confirm another report, from WPVI-TV in Philadelphia, which quoted a patron who said the fight started after he received his steak before the customer in front of him in line.
“I had a rare steak, which is a lot faster to cook than a well-done steak. That’s why I got my steak first,” Alexis Rios told the reporter for 6 ABC. “I grab a chair to defend myself, and then sooner or later that was it. Punches were getting thrown. Chairs were getting thrown.”
Officers from the Bensalem Police Department are still investigating the incident.
Fun, largely unrelated fact – according to the Global Obesity Observatory, the US ranks 14th in the world for adult males.
Pacific Island nations dominate:
South Africa ranks 112th on the same list, sandwiched between Honduras and Saint Kitts and Nevis.
