Whataburger, Twitter


It's like a modern-day West Side Story. If West Side Story's rivalry was over a football game. And the gangs were just a bunch of high school students. And the whole thing took place in a Whataburger.

Two rival San Antonio, Tex. high schools, O'Connor High and Brandeis High, converged on the fast food chain after Brandeis pulled off a close 10-12 victory at the schools' annual face-off.

How, exactly, the food fight escalated is unknown, but it lasted about 30 seconds and much of the chaos was caught on video. Afterwards, the Whataburger dining room was so trashed that the restaurant needed to close it.

Though the principals of both O'Connor and Brandeis have apologized to the restaurant and said school officials would watch the video to "determine which students were responsible," Whataburger has said that will be unnecessary.

"We understand that this act was an emotional moment between a small group of students and not representative of the entire student population," Whataburger announced in a statement.

It continues, "The Whataburger team will continue to welcome Brandeis and O'Connor students at our restaurants...and support both high schools."

According to San Antonio's Ken5, students returned to the scene of the crime "to personally apologize" to employees. One O'Connor student told the outlet, "Everyone feels bad about it and it shouldn't have happened like that." 

And hey, at least nobody got stabbed.
