So are you saying you think it had more to do with their behavior or was the owner at fault?

Actually a group should get together. A grope of large very hungry men, should desend upon the restaurant and become Buffet Killers. After a few days of this the owner of the restaurant will have to find another way. All you can eat is all you can eat, Not all you can eat within reason of the owner.
My feelings exactly "All you can eat"! customers are right here...

Those dirty lefties going into an all you can eat place and practicing their foul socialism by taking from the owner...The sign says "All you can eat"! Not "All you can eat - once per week" or "All you can eat once per month", simply all you can eat.
I managed a restaurant for 8 years and can tell you, no matter how much the two guys were eating, it did not change the reality that the business is likely making about a 28% profit margin. This is really just an overly number fixated owner trying to change a "28.7" to a "28.8". Seriously.
So your saying if a group of large men went into the restaurant which is ALL YOU CAN EAT. And eat all they want each day, that's illegal or wrong?
