Reviewers are mocking a Texas restaurant accused of refusing to serve a gay couple, by reviewing it as if it were a gay cruising hotspot.

Colin Dewberry and his partner Kelly Williams say they were leaving Big Earl’s restaurant in Pittsburg, Texas on Tuesday morning when the waitress told them: “we don’t serve fags here”.

She added: “Here at Big Earl’s we like for men to act like men and for ladies to act like ladies, so we want you to never return.”

Restaurant owner Earl Cheney defended the decision, saying: “That’s just not appropriate in a family restaurant that has a sign on the front door that we just don’t do that here.”

Reviewers have since taken to the internet to post steamy reviews of what they got up to on their trip to Big Earl’s:

– “On the positive side, it says “Bait House” but the place was more like a Bath House with all the horny Texas cowboys flirting and slapping each other’s behinds. Very gay-friendly atmosphere!”

– “Food is horrible!!!! But they love gays here so definitely a place to bring your partner and do lots of PDA!”

– “I met a cowboy daddy named Earl in the men’s room and he did not return the favor after I got him off. Giving two stars and not one, because Earl was a man’s man. Very masculine and verbally aggressive. And I like that. Still, I left unsatisfied.”

– “The food is whatever but the SCENE is simply TO-DIE. They don’t call it “Big” Earls for nothin (amiright?). Do yourself (and the lovely owners) a favor and get your bedazzled bottoms in this place ASAP! Happy Cruising Girls!”

– “Well, the food isn’t all that good, but this is still the best gay cruiser joint in Texas! I’ve picked up several dates there. All are very handsome, very gay men. I hear the owner offers discounts to men in chaps.”
