A Dallas man says a popular Oak Cliff restaurant caused his home to flood and he wants them to pay for the damage.

According to Jim McDaniel, a city crew told him that grease had clogged a nearby sewer line, causing a backup that flooded his home two years ago.

McDaniel believes the grease came from two nearby restaurants who were warned by the city about failing to maintain their grease traps.

The attorney for Taqueria El Si Hay told the Dallas Morning News his client was in line with city ordinances and that there was no proof the restaurant's grease caused the backup.

The owners of El Si Hay are denying his claim of nearly $8,500 in damages.

A Dallas city ordinance mandates that restaurants clean their grease traps about every 90 days.
