Heh... it's kind of funny that Denny's purchased several of the locations when the corporation started to falter, given Denny's own controversy later in Maryland when they served refuse to some of the black patrons.

It's a shame, though, that Sambo's was associated with the Sambo characters, given that the name was actually a combination of 'SAM' Battistone and Newell 'BO'hnett, the two who started the chain.

If you *really* want to see racism in restaurants, research the Coon Chicken Inn.

Did you mean "refused to serve" or was it really "served refuse to"?

Either one is bad, but one is much, much worse...

That's the magic behind that sentence, where you can swap the words around and the meaning still works.
