    No-carb eating couple booted from buffet
    Friday, April 23, 2004 Posted: 11:21 PM EDT (0321 GMT)

    SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) -- A couple on a low-carb diet were kicked out of a buffet restaurant after the manager said they'd eaten too much roast beef.

    Sui Amaama, who along with his wife have been on the Atkins Diet for two weeks, was asked to leave after he went up to the buffet at the Chuck-A-Rama in suburban Taylorsville for his 12th slice of roast beef.

    "It's so embarrassing actually," said Isabelle Leota, Amaama's wife. "We went in to have dinner, we were under the impression Chuck-A-Rama was an all-you-can-eat establishment."

    Not so, said Jack Johanson, the restaurant chain's district manager.

    "We've never claimed to be an all-you-can-eat establishment," said Johanson. "Our understanding is a buffet is just a style of eating."

    The general manager who was carving the meat Tuesday became concerned about having enough for other patrons and asked Amaama to stop, Johanson said.

    Offended, the couple asked for a refund. The manager refused and called police when they would not leave.

    The couple said they have eaten at Chuck-A-Rama's $8.99 buffet at least twice a week, but did not plan to return.

    What an *******....

    His "understanding" is wrong. Why in the world would people continue to go up for seconds, thirds, etc.?

    He's using that as an excuse to save face cuz he was not properly prepared for business due to not having sufficient amounts of food....people amaze me sometimes...

    Sure the management was in the wrong, they should have put a disclaimer if they werent all you can eat but HIS 12TH time going up. Atkins or not excess calories still make you fat. I think were starting to see the reverse trend of the non fat food binges, where people would eat tons of fat free food and think it is ok because it is fat-free; people are doing the same damn thing with carb free food.

    That's why you have to go to Chinese Buffets. They get stoked when I go in and down plate after plate of food, because they're used to the tiny portions that Asians eat by.

    All the general tso's chicken I can eat for 10.99.

    Its obvious the guy was being a glutton - but from a business standpoint you can offend a customer like that. Just think how many potential customers Chuck-O-Ramma has lost because of that incident. I mean, hell, Number 5 isnt going to eat there and now neither is Bioman. Screw that place.

    I know how frustrating it can be - Red Lobster ran an 'all you can eat' crab leg special last summer that ended up in the company losing like 30 million dollars. They didnt anticipate how many crablegs people could actually eat. You wouldnt believe some of the people that would come through that door - 300, 400 lbs of pure lard on two legs going through 20+ lbs of snow crab legs in a single sitting. Butter slathered all over their multiple chins, asking their waitress through a mouth full of seafood to bring more free bread. Believe me, I wanted to ask some of those people to leave. But I just smiled and thanked them for their business when they left 4 hours after sitting down.

    OMG! What a visual! The crab legs, buttery chins, Chuck-o-Rama, you couldn't make that up if you tried! LOL

    It's like fodder for a Jonathan Waters film.

    Suddenly I don't feel so bad about having my 6 pack slighty obscured by fat.

    I fully enjoyed that special.

    10lbs of crabs at a time. Still brings a smile to my face.

    The company lost so much money on that promotion that the president and chairman of the board of Red Lobster both lost their jobs over it!
