Man kicked out of all-you-can-eat buffet after eating more than 50 lbs of food, sues for $2-million

Springfield, MA| A man from Massachusetts is suing Golden Corral Corporation for 2 million dollars for false advertising after being literally thrown out of one of the chain’s restaurants by the employees last Thursday.

According to witnesses, the 51-year-old man who lives on welfare was expelled from the restaurant after he then spent more than 7 hours on-site, ingesting a quantity of food which has been estimated between 50 and 70 pounds.

Despite the fact that the restaurant advertised the buffet as “all-you-can-eat”, the manager of the establishment seems to have lost patience at some point, telling him that his meal would be free but asking him to leave.

The manager’s intervention angered Mr. Fleming, and a brief altercation took place before he was finally pushed out of the restaurant.

He immediately called the police and filed a complaint against the restaurant, and he intends to make the people responsible for his mistreatment, pay for their actions.

“It’s a serious injustice, and I am deeply insulted!” Mr. Flemmings told reporters.

“With my income, I rarely go to the restaurant, so I try to get as much as I can for my money when I do. This was the worst experience I have ever had in a restaurant. Not only did they kick me out while I was still hungry, but they looked at me like I was disgusting, like I was not even worthy of eating there! It’s unacceptable, and I demand a compensation!”


Mr. Flemming says the employee of the Golden Corral did not use any insulting language, but he claims that the disgust that was visible on their faces has left him with some deep emotional wounds.

The direction of the restaurant chain quickly issued a press release announcing that the decision to expel Mr. Flemmings was a regrettable personal initiative from an overzealous franchise manager.

They also said that some financial indemnities had been offered to compensate the damage suffered by the victim, but had been refused.

Mr. Flemmings confirmed that he had been offered a significant amount of money by the company, but he is convinced that he can get more if he goes to court.

The primary hearing, in this case, should take place on March 7, at the Springfield District Court.

  1. He should’ve been turned away at the door and sent to Jenny Craig

  2. Wow I am a big guy 296 this guy is over 3 times my size I never ate more then 2 or 3 plates…this guy went overboard in my opinion….wow

  3. There are limits that are common knowledges. Breakfast Bar, Lunch Bar, Dinner Bar. When you go in to a buffet your there for ONE mealtime Not an all day food binge.

  4. This guy has some serious issues, he probably paid $12 for his buffet most ppl don’t usually get more then 3 plates at a buffet. This guy stayed for 7 hours…. 7… he ate way more then his fair share and to be honest if he KNEW he was going to stay for 7 hours and eat as much as he did then dude pay this buffet more then your $12 they put out a lot of money to make this food and you were eating all the food on the other customers the cooks probably couldn’t keep up with your huge appetite so you should have paid them $12 for each hour you stayed.

  5. Retrain that manager. One fat guy was not bankrupting Golden Corral! Bake more rolls, boil more pasta. Have a server bring it to him. The customers would love it!!
