Good evening. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. May I ask what exactly your question is? Do you think she knew or had reason to know you do not eat pork? Do you know why they would serve the burnt ends with both beef and pork or if she was even aware of this?
Thank you for the reply. I think it is going to be hard to sue the restaurant, for the actions of the waitress, as it would not appear her actions were intentional. Being Jewish myself, I do understand the meaning of all of this and how it can effect you. Moreover, the restaurant may argue that if there were any dietary restrictions, you should have inquired about it, seeing how this was a BBQ restaurant and they have all different types of meats. Even though your friend asked about pork being in the corn, if it was not asked by you, she may not have realized it was an issue with what she offered and what you ordered. I know this is not ideal but unless you can show she intentionally did this and it was a hate crime type of issue, it may be hard to sue, as you would need to ask for damages suffered and those could be hard to determine here.
I think you can certainly file a complaint with the restaurant and the owner and see if they will compensate you in any away but as far as filing a lawsuit, I think it may be hard to prevail.
