Large Rat Falls from Buffalo Wild Wings Ceiling, Lands onto Menu, Woman Says

A woman got more than she ordered when a large rat fell from the ceiling of a Buffalo Wild Wings and onto her table. Alisha Norman stopped in the Los Angeles restaurant for lunch when she heard a noise above her and a rat fell onto her menu.
