A group claims that were victims of racial discrimination at a Buffalo Wild Wingsin Illinois.
A family and friends were reportedly out celebrating and decided to stop at the restaurant to eat. Unfortunately, they claim that a serverattempted to move them because another customer was racist and didnt want to sit by the multiracial group.
Mary Vahl posted her story on her Facebook page, which starts off by explaining that she went to the Buffalo Wild Wings as part of a group of 18 people. After checking in with the host, she writes that The host went up to my husband and asked what race are you guys? My husband asked him why it mattered and the host responded that a table with 2 of their regular customers were next to where we were to be seated and he didnt want us sitting there because hes racist. Us being a group of minorities, mostly consisting of African Americans.... so of course, we dont give him the satisfaction and told the host well sit where they set us up.
The groups problems didnt end there, Vahl claimed. We knew right away who it was because the guy was staring at us the entire time and giving us looks as we were being seated.

After placing their drink and appetizer orders, Vahl said that they noticed an employee talking to the apparently upset table. Eventually, that employee approached the table and claimed that the seats were reserved and that the group would have to move.
The guys politely tell him that were not moving, Vahl writes, and request to speak to the manager in which he says hes one of the managers (John). Meanwhile, weve told our waitress what was happening and she makes a comment indicating that shes already aware hes a racist because hes a regular. How is an establishment ok with serving people who try to control which types of people sit around them?! It was not ok that a person of management was willing to move 6 adults and 12 children versus 2 grown adults who are uncomfortable sitting by black folks!

Vahl then said that another manager approached and continued to claim that the tables were reserved, although there were reportedly no reserved signs present on the tables when the group arrived.
The post ends with Vahl saying thatshe and her group left the restaurant and ended up having their meal at a nearby Hooters.
