A Hungry Jack’s restaurant has been forced to ban anyone under the age of 17 without a guardian after a spate of violent incidents.
The Hungry Jacks outside the Westfield Whitford City shopping centre, in Perth‘s north, announced the ban with a sign stuck to the restaurant’s front door.

A Hungry Jack in Whitfords Shopping Centre in northern Perth has temporarily banned anyone under the age of 17 from their store after a spate of violent incidents
The restaurant has recently been targeted by youths – believed to be groups of eshays – who have intimidated staff and customers, and wrecked the store.
‘There were incidents where kids came into the restaurant and trashed the place,’ a casual manager at the store, John Castillo, told PerthNow.
‘We are just trying to protect our employees… the kids are harassing staff.’
Mr Castillo claims police refused to act because the perpetrators ‘were minors’.
However, the sign is no longer stuck to the front door as the store’s management now singles out the troublemakers and refuses them service.
‘We know who the kids are now,’ Mr Castillo said.
A local who posted a video of the sign to TikTok fired up social media users.
‘Imagine getting ID’d to get a f**king whopper,’ one user wrote.
‘Getting a fakie to go to Hungry Jacks,’ another wrote.

Some users commented on the type of customer that frequented the store.
‘Whitfords Hungry Jacks [is] always filled with eshays,’ one wrote.
‘No more burgers for the eshays,’ another joked.
The decision to refuse service follows a spate of youth crime across WA.
Since the start of the year, at least 16 juveniles have been charged with more than 100 offences including burglaries and armed robberies.
