This is what happens when a Dallas restaurant has the gall to charge for chips and salsa.

Early Saturday morning, a brawl broke out at the El Paisano taqueria on Lombardy Lane near Love Field because, Isael Rojas says on Facebook, "chips were $5 and they wanted green salsa instead of red." Punches and chairs get thrown, hair gets pulled and people have trouble maintaining their balance.  

Eventually, firefighters show up, but they, unlike those lucky enough to have been watching Rojas' live feed, have missed the action. Throughout, Rojas never loses sight of what's most important, asking, at the end of the video, "Where's my food at?" It's a genuinely fascinating video (that would be even better if Rojas remembered the cardinal rule of amateur video shooting: please, for the love of God, put your phone in landscape mode people), so check it out.
