HOUSTON — A popular chain restaurant is drawing attention for its “politically incorrect” signs.

Signs posted at the five company-owned Berryhill Baja Grill restaurants in the Houston area read:

“Notice. This store is politically incorrect. We say Merry Christmas. God bless America. We salute our flag and give thanks to our troops, police officers and firefighters. If this offends you, you are welcome to leave. In God we trust.”

The signs were posted at the direction of Berryhill CEO Jeff Anon, according to KTRK. He said the tipping point for him were the generic red cups used for the holiday season by a well-known coffee establishment.

“I don’t think anybody means anything bad or mean when they say Merry Christmas, and I thought somebody had to stand up and say enough of this,” he told KTRK.

Anon said there have been some complaints about the signs, but said, “I’d say for every one who thought it wasn’t appropriate, probably 10 to 20 who thought it was and supported it.”
