The staff at Taqueria Mexico on West Colfax Avenue in Denver asked a homeless man to leave Thursday night.
Not so fast, said patron Vanessa Varona, who was there with her family, and offered to buy him a meal.
DENVER — A Denver woman’s Facebook post is going viral after she said a local restaurant refused to serve a homeless customer.
Vanessa Varona was eating dinner at Taqueria Mexico on West Colfax Avenue on Thursday night when a homeless man came inside looking for a hot meal.
“I told him get whatever you want. I’ll pay for it,” Varona said.
After the man ordered, another customer asked him to sit down at his booth so the two could eat together, but the restaurant wouldn’t allow it.
“Here comes a waitress and basically stood him up and said no you can’t sit down here,” Varona said. “How do you treat people like that?”
Varona posted her experience on Facebook where it was shared more than 6,000 times by Monday evening.
