WACO, Texas, March 25 (UPI) -- A young Texas woman decided there is no such thing as bad publicity when she considered names for her Waco eatery and decided on Fat Ho Burger.

The restaurant opened Tuesday, and Lakisha Evans' plan seems to be working so far, KENS-TV in San Antonio reported. She has a straightforward business plan.

"My burgers, they're cheap. They don't go over 6 bucks because I thought, you know, I grew up in poverty," Evans said.

Evans, 23, grew up in Waco with her mother and five siblings. She is the only one in the family to graduate from college.

The whole family is working at Fat Ho Burgers, but Evans said she had to invest everything she owned to start it.

"I had to sell my car, my tires, my TV, my laptop, my computer. I had to sell all this to get this up," she told KENS.

The name is bringing in the customers.

"I was just wondering is this the famous place we can get burgers at," one asked.
