Milwaukee Restaurant That Wouldn’t Seat Giannis Is So Not Helping The Bucks Re-Sign Him

Bucks fans should probably let local taco chain BelAir Cantina know the team is desperate to bring Giannis Antetokounmpo back once his contract is up.

But first they apparently have to explain who Giannis is to BelAir’s employees.

Taco-ing Giannis for granted?

Giannis showed up to the restaurant following Milwaukee’s dramatic Game 4 victory over Boston on Sunday.

Then he waited for 10 minutes to be seated. Eventually, he dipped.

Bucks fans, rightfully, were not pleased. Like this one.

And this one.

BelAir Cantina’s response was kinda embarrassing.

First, an apology without accepting responsibility:

Then, an attempt to cover their asses:

Conveniently, BelAir Cantina only released an image, not video footage. It’s probably safe to go ahead and assume they would have dropped the video too had it not made them look really, really bad.

In February, Giannis sounded more comfortable with leaving Milwaukee in free agency, which won’t be until 2021, than he ever had before.

So while Giannis insists he has no hard feelings about the incident, it’s hard to blame Bucks fans for feeling like this right about now.
