A disabled Sacramento woman filed suit because she suffered "embarrassment and humiliation" when she was unable access tables nor maneuver a wheelchair during her visit last November.
According to an ABC news report, "Squeeze Inn owner Travis Hausauer said it's the second time he's been sued for access issues since his restaurant was featured on national TV."
Hausauer said he just made improvements in the unisex restroom and outside seating area as part of the settlement for the previous suit.
Here's a clip from the Burgers episode, aired in Triple D's first season.

Speaking for myself, I'm a proponent of the Americans with Disabilities Act. If a building is too small to service the public, and by that I mean ALL the public, then that business should move to a new location, make changes to its facilities, or suffer the consequences.
I know business is tough these days - the restaurant business no exception. And I'm sorry for The Squeeze Inn's troubles. But they're smart people, they know their biz and they know the laws. Accommodating a wheelchair, even if it's to provide outdoor service or to make reasonable accommodations in some other way, seems not too large a thing to do.
