    Yep we all know the sterotype that Blacks love watermellon, ribs and fried chicken, but is this really offensive. Why is Mohammad Pita Hut (Kabobs), Liberman's Dehli, Guiliani's Pizza. Spartcus's Gyros, Ming Dynasty's Chinese Food, Samuri Sam's etc also not offensive? Firs I want to point out a AFRICAN-AMERICAN chose the name of the restaurant. It's a BLACK owned restaurant! How is this any different than Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles!

    The black community has so many issues, why the hell are they wasting time on this? If I ever make it back to NY I am going to make a personal stop at this place!

    Honestly ... I don't see how people can find offense in any joke, which is what these business names actually are. Only one thing sells more than humor ... we all know what that is.

    Have you seen the Dave Chapell skit about the sleeping aid for black people? It was a bucket of BBQ ribs.

    I honestly love watermellon and ribs, although I prefer BBQ/Grilled chicken over fried chicken

    Is this that big a deal? I am reminded of a barbeque joint in Roseville that was forced to take down his sign depicting a big black man in overalls offering a big plate of ribs by the politically correct city govt. The man on the sign was the owner of the resaurant....

    I love that guy.

    You see the skit about the blind grand wizard who discovered he was Black?

    I nearly pissed my pants laughing at the end of that piece.
