A woman assaulted a waitress at a Chicago Denny’s restaurant when she was informed that her $4 all-you-can-eat pancake meal couldn’t be shared with her friends.
The server explained to 27-year-old Natasha West that the unlimited pancake menu item was only for a single diner and not something to be shared by everyone at the table.
The restaurant’s menu stated that “restrictions may apply” to the all-you-can-eat pancake meal, though it doesn’t explicitly limit each meal to one customer.
“We start you off with three fluffy buttermilk pancakes and then deliver them hot, two at a time, until you’ve had your fill,” the menu states.
West responded to the server by cursing and throwing several punches at her — though she missed each swing, the Oak Lawn Police Department reported. West and her friends left the restaurant without paying for their meals, but she proceeded to kick a door before leaving, The Smoking Gun reported.
Denny’s workers gave police a description of the car West left in and she was subsequently apprehended. She was arrested and charged with assault and damage to property. A friend of hers ultimately paid the bill upon her arrest, WGN reported.
