    This doesn't look right ... there's going to be trouble.

    A food fight in Brownsville has led to a cafe owner facing an aggravated assault charge over a customer allegedly whacked on the head with plate.

    Police say Maria Del Rayo Cordero is accused of tossing a tray of food and tea at the customer who had complained he ordered a chicken dish, but was served beef.

    KRGV-TV reports the pair argued before both allegedly threw food items at each other.

    Police say the owner is accused of grabbing a plate and striking the man. Paramedics treated him at the scene on Saturday.

    The owner was freed after posting $7,500 bond. She could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
