Gary James has run Gary's Chicaros restaurant in Enid, Oklahoma for 44 years. It's surprising since his customer base is somewhat limited. Gary is an anti-gay, white supremacist and his restaurant's slogan is "where the great whites gather."

Gary told a local newspaper: "If a racist is someone who doesn't like unproductive trash, then it's true" that he's a racist. Gary has also become the butt of jokes as pranksters have left reviews on Yelp describing his restaurant as "the best gay bar in Enid" and that "Gary himself sports ass-less chaps, a choker chain and some pink nipple tassels daily."
