Restaurant Booming after Banning Biden Supporters; So Popular It Runs Out of Food
DeBary Diner in Florican told Biden voters to 'take your business elsewhere'
After going viral for banning supporters of Democrat Joe Biden, a Florida restaurant has seen business skyrocket, becoming so popular that is running out of food, according to reports.
As first reported by Neon Nettle, DeBary Diner owner Angie Ugarte placed a sign in the window of her restaurant telling Biden voters to "take your business elsewhere."
The sign, displayed on the cafe's front door, reads:
"If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere. God bless America and God bless our soldiers."
"It was the only thing I felt like I could do," the pro-military business owner said.
After seemingly striking a chord with patriotic Americans everywhere, the DeBary Diner, located in DeBary, became so popular it was forced to temporarily close after not having enough food to meet a surge in demand.
The restaurant was closed on September 2 after running out of food, according to the West Volusia Beacon.
"I’ve gotten so many people calling me from all over the world, from Europe, trying to purchase meals for veterans, which I still haven’t been able to organize," Ugarte told the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
"I think that the veterans will be fed for the rest of the year at the rate I’m getting donations."
Several military veterans descended upon the diner to express their support for the sign Ugarte had posted.
"All these people said, ‘We’ve got to come over here and thank Angie.’ We wanted to come over and thank you," Rod Phillips, a decorated Vietnam veteran told Ugarte as he clutched her hand.
"Being a Vietnam veteran and combat-wounded, I don’t wish war on anybody.
"But there is a proper time and place to get out of there."
Ugarte said she has received some "death threats and bomb threats," but the reactions have mostly been favorable — and patrons are matching their words with food orders and cash.
The restaurant reopened Friday.
Here's to the continued success of the DeBary Diner!
