A flood of Yelp.com reviews crowning an Oklahoma restaurant owned by a homophobe the “best gay bar in town” followed reporting by a local news station.

The reviewers lauded Gary's Chicaros as “the best gay bar in Enid.”

Owner Gary James told Oklahoma City's NewsChannel 4 “I think I can spot a freak or a faggot” and “I really don't want gays around.”

“Any man that would compromise his own body would compromise anything,” James said of gay men.

Internet pranksters struck back, leaving Yelp.com reviews praising Gary's Chicaros and its owner.

“Gary's is one of the best bars around,” a reviewer wrote. “Gary himself sports assless chaps, a choker chain and some pink nipple tassels daily.”

“[T]his place sends you into hyper gay space,” a positive reviewer commented.

Another review states that the establishment plans to host a live viewing of Logo's drag reality contest RuPaul's Drag Race.

James, also an Enid City Council candidate, has denied that he's a racist, telling the Enid News and Eagle: “If a racist is someone who doesn't like unproductive trash, then it's true.”
