Saw interview of owner on Channel 5 news just now. Claims to support the 2A.

My guess is he hasn't actually read the Constitution.

It just checked..... it doesn’t appear to be listed at Texas3006.com. If it is posted, can somebody confirm that and post it there?

$3 milk and $3 coffee? Ridiculous. $15 breakfast? Same. Cracker Barrel, Waffle House, Denny's, plenty of good choices for much more reasonable prices and without moronic politics in your face.

I like Denny's for breakfast and last time I was in one - no 30.06.

Those might be signs on the left and right of the doors, but if they are, they are not big enough to be valid.

Given the verbiage on the check, why would any pro-gun person give them their business... over priced business at that?

Because you don't get the check until the end.

To be accurate, the cost for this breakfast was $22.73 when you include tax.

For that kind of money, I expect a darn good seafood dinner.

Where it's not posted 30.06 with anti-gun verbiage on my bill.

Before I left this morning I looked for a place to have breakfast, and Ellen’s popped up on my DuckDuckGo search. When I read the description of its fare I crossed it off my list. Not surprised they support gun grabbers.

No prices on the website menu and the way the $15 breakfast is described sounds more like a $10.95 max.
