And the Court said the restaurant could not kick out a paying patron simply for eating too much . The risk of a big-eater was on the restaurant.

Don’t be too hungry Megatoad says it’s best to “not starve yourself ” going in, as that can lead to having your stomach cramp up when you fill it with 10 plates of sliced roast beef. He recommends eating a light meal beforehand, like yogurt or a bowl of cereal, as they’ll “move quickly”.
