Amarillo restaurant says insulting sign was posted by former employee

AMARILLO, TX (KCBD) -

A restaurant in Amarillo appeared to insult the whole town as they closed their doors and got ready to head to...Lubbock.

Amarillo restaurant Sava! Italiano says a disgruntled former employee posted a notice on their door calling the residents "rednecks" and worse. The sign was picked up by Reddit and went viral, capturing the attention of local and national media.

Grubstreet.com got in touch with chef-owner Mark Coffman who called the sign a "nasty joke" and said he had probably been the target of a prank by a cook who has filed for unemployment.

Sava! Italiano announced plans for a new Lubbock location on Aug. 12.
