Of course, Waco is in the bible belt and for some folks the very idea that someone would open up a business here that not only offended one segment of the population (folks who are over weight), but a totally different second group who lets say are not filled with wholesome Christian values - caused some to openly ridicule and blast the name of this new business. There were even a few people who teach business as a career who offered to help this new business owner - if she would just change the name of her business to something more mainstream.
Fortunately, she did not listen to those who only see negatives when something new and different comes along and instead she kept her "Fat Ho Burgers" name. On Saturday, my wife and I drove by her restaurant to order a burger or two. However, when we were there at around 2pm, the line waiting to just get in the front door had well over 50 people in it. Over the past ten days, a new saying is being heard all over Waco at lunch time. That saying is not only funny, but it has also turned into one of the best business slogans of 2011. "Meet me at the Fat Ho for lunch". Current wait times to be served at "Fat Ho Burgers" are around one hour and so far thousands of people are willing to hang around that long - just to order one of their famous burgers.
