Popular Houston Eatery Turkey Leg Hut Hit With Nearly $1.3M Lawsuit Over Unsettled Debt


The popular Houston restaurant Turkey Leg Hut is being sued for nearly $1.3 million for an outstanding debt and lawsuit fees.

A lawsuit filed in a U.S. district court in Illinois last month claims the corporation US Foods, Inc. is suing the restaurant and its owner Nakia Price, over debt and lawsuit fees amounting to $1,288,583.12, ABC13 Houston reported.

The lawsuit alleges that beginning in September 2020, US Foods supplied produce, other non-PACA foods, and food-related products and services to Turkey Leg But but never received payments on time.

PACA, also known as Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act, was created to promote fair trade in the fruit and vegetable industry.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that “PACA protects businesses dealing in fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables by establishing and enforcing a code of fair business practices and by helping companies resolve business disputes.”

The lawsuit also alleges that the eatery agreed to pay 1.5% monthly interest on any past-due payment until all monies were collected. Apparently, produce orders were placed from May 2022 to September 2022, which US Foods says sold, shipped, and delivered to Turkey Leg Hut.

Invoices for payment were sent out, but the restaurant never paid the $85,106.17 owed for produce.

That balance, plus interest and fees, now add up to more than $1 million, which US Foods is asking for.
