Many local restaurants have had trouble staying afloat, paying the bills, and keeping the doors open over the last few years, and although one locally-owned restaurant is doing well now, a woman insists on getting them closed down. 

The reason why she was to “shut them down” seems pretty bizarre, though 

Only about 20% of restaurants actually succeed, according to the National Restaurant Association, and one woman is hoping that this restaurant on the 90 go out of business. 

The restaurant, Gino’s Cheese Steak & Onion, is located in Fayetteville, NY. It was established in 2014, and it has become known as one of the best places for a philly cheesesteak in the Syracuse area. 

A few weeks ago, the phone rang at Gino’s, and the staff did not expect what happened next. 

The social media representative for Gino’s Cheese Steak & Onion outlined the details on a Facebook post earlier this week. 

It was a woman who lived nearby, and she was not pleased with the smell from the restaurant.

“I’m a vegan, my family is all vegan. The kids have never had meat. My husband hasn’t had meat since we met 4 years ago,” she told Gino’s over the phone. “It was never a problem before because we weren’t outside throughout the winter.”

“Now that we have full access to our backyard,” she said. “All we can smell is your meat cooking and it’s making my husband miss steak.”

Initially, Gino’s Cheese Steak & Onion thought it was a prank, but it was not

According to Gino’s she became very “irate.” 

“[She] said if we didn’t stop “invading her sacred family space” with beef, she was going to call the Village office and police department to start taking action to get us shut down,” Gino’s said on a Facebook post. 

Now, they’re doing a special offer for her husband! 

“NOTE TO HUSBAND: We’d like to invite you to our store for a sandwich on us. In fact, come and enjoy our Sausage Fest Thursdays! The first time it’s free – after that, you’re going to have to pay for the sausage your wife can’t give you. We’ll even Lysol you down before you leave, we wouldn’t want her to smell us on you. Be careful, don’t get caught with a grease stain on your collar – your wife will know you’ve been cheating….shhh…just our dirty little secret.”

It’s unclear at this time if the husband has taken them up on their offer, but it sounds pretty difficult to resist!
