Why did the fight at the Golden Corral restaurant take place?

CBS Philadelphia reported that the fight amongst the customers started when the Golden Corral restaurant location ran out of steak. One customer also got his steak before someone else, leading to a brawl.

Alexis Rios, a witness who was present at the restaurant, said:

“[The chef is] trying to understand what you want and give you what you want. I had a rare steak, which is a lot faster to cook than a well-done steak. That's why I got my steak first."

Customers were masked, making it hard to hear each other, leading to them shouting at each other and eventually escalating the fight. People began tossing their chairs. Rios added:

"I grab a chair to defend myself, and then sooner or later, that was it. Punches were getting thrown. Chairs were getting thrown."

Two people were reportedly injured once the event took place, with some others bleeding as well. Rios’ brother, who was at the restaurant with him, also got a black eye following the brawl.

Golden Corral released a statement following the incident:

“We notified the local authorities, and they are investigating the incident. Thankfully, no serious injuries have been reported. The safety of our guests and our co-workers is our top priority."

No arrests concerning the fight have been made so far. People will potentially be booked for assault and disorderly conduct.
