SAN ANTONIO -- Students from O'Connor and Brandeis high schools apologized to employees of a Whataburger restaurant after a food fight broke out Saturday evening.

A flurry of social media activity referenced the fight after a heated football game between the two schools.

The principals and students from both schools apologized to the restaurant chain on Monday. 

Students from the schools also showed up at the Whataburger at Loop 1604 and Bandera Road to personally apologize, according to the restaurant chain.

Whataburger released the following statement: 

“We understand that this act was an emotional moment between a small group of students and not representative of the entire student population.  The Whataburger team will continue to welcome Brandeis and O'Connor students at our restaurants and we're also committed to continuing the partnership and support both high schools."

It was unclear who started the fight, but food can be seen flying across the restaurant in a video provided by a KENS 5 viewer.

The incident forced employees to close a portion of the restaurant according to Whataburger.

Pascual Gonzalez, spokesperson for NISD, confirmed the food fight broke out and released the statement about the incident:

 "Campus administrators will review videos to identify students who will face appropriate consequences including suspension from school. NISD will also cooperate with law enforcement and restaurant management in pursuing criminal charges if warranted."
