Most Chicagoans know that when you go to the restaurant Ed Debevic’s you shouldn’t expect the nicest servers. In fact, you should prepare for incredibly rude ones.
But it appears that one exceptionally rude server at the restaurant has reached Internet stardom in a viral video posted to social media last week.
According to the video’s caption, a group of people in town for the Younique Convention decided to dine at the “interesting” restaurant, which they knew was known for its rudeness.

The day's top national and international news.
In the video, posted on Aug. 10 by LaNetta Limb Maxfield, a server is heard telling the group that she’d likely get fired if she was nice to them and called the patrons cheap.
“You know what grandpa, if I was nice to you, I’d get canned,” she said. “If you want good service, you go somewhere else. I know Hooters is probably more your speed, but you came here on purpose.”
The server is also heard telling a woman who ordered a Diet Coke, “I’d love to get you one, if it’ll shut you up.”
While the scene is a common one at the Chicago staple, the video has since been shared more than 82,600 times and received more than 4.4 million views.
