Does all-you-can-eat really mean all-you-can-eat?

two men were banned in britain for being pigs at a buffet....according to the manager the two were a cost liability....

"They are in such a hurry to beat everyone to the food they spoil everything," the manager tells the Telegraph. "We are supposed to be
a buffet but they eat everything out of the bowls before people can get there. We just can't keep doing this."

the two men defended themselves by stating the bowls were small.

does it mean "all-you-can-eat-within-reason," or perhaps "all-you-can-eat-as-long-as-we-can-maintain-a-healthy-profit-margin"?

should all-you-can-eat, in this age of obesity, exist at all?

the two pigs would each eat five bowls of stirfry on their regular visits to the restaurant...

some eat a lot, and some eat like birds....it should all even out...best thing is don't offer the buffet, or put the prices up if you are not making profit....

We've had the same experiences here in Canada and the United States as well.

Not sure of what the outcome of the Canadian issues were but that fat guy in the US was big news a year or two ago.

Well look at their photo.

They have nothing else to do but eat. Obviously no woman wants to date either of them.

i did not see that photo, they look big enough to eat 5 bowls each but not morbidly obese...

so what's the limit one should adhere to at a buffet?........we went to a couple of sunday brunches buffet style, the food was like no other so good, brunch was $40....two trips to the buffet and that was enough.
