Texas’ first Salad and Go drive-through opens May 5 in Plano.

The company picked North Texas as its first focus outside of its home state of Arizona, and plans call for at least six Salad and Go shops to open in Plano, Dallas, Richardson and Fort Worth in mid-2021.

The sign is tongue-in-cheek, but the husband and wife team did it in the name of keeping their customers and employees safe.

“Our new surcharge,” the sign reads.

“$75 – If I have to hear why you disagree…”

Wayne LaCombe told CNN that he got the idea after seeing a similar sign online.

“I thought, ‘Oh, that’s funny. I’m gonna put that up because it does send a message,'” he said. “And not five minutes after I put it up customers coming in were laughing and taking pictures of it.”

A Texas ramen restaurant was covered in racist graffiti after its owner spoke out on CNN against Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) decision to lift coronavirus restrictions in the state.

Mike Nguyen told ABC affiliate KSAT 12 that he found red graffiti Sunday on the windows of his San Antonio restaurant, called Noodle Tree.

Photos of the vandalism show several phrases written on the windows, including “no mask,” “kung flu,” “commie,” “hope u die” and “ramen noodle flu.”

Noodle Tree delayed its regular noon opening by an hour to address “an incident,” according to a Facebook announcement.

If left to Rep. Mayes Middleton (R-Wallisville), the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) would be given its last call this legislative session.

Middleton filed House Bill (HB) 4069 just before the deadline that would eliminate the TABC and move some of its functions under the wing of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).

Section 17 (c) reads, “All rules of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission are continued in effect as rules of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation until superseded by a rule of the Texas Department of Licensing and

As of Wednesday, March 10, masks will no longer be required by the state of Texas, and all businesses can open at 100% capacity per the executive order Gov. Greg Abbott issued last week.
