    I haven't watched this show for years but, having read about this episode yesterday, I couldn't help myself. The owners of the restaurant, in Scottsdale, Arizona, are bat**** crazy, I have no idea how they've managed to stay in business for 6 years. The article below has details of what's happened since the show, with an online meltdown from the owners, as well as links to the show itself.

    In one part, they try to stop a person leaving the restaurant as he hadn't paid....for the food he never got! They routinely tell their customer to **** off and that they don't know anything about the food they ordered. They steal tips from their waiting staff. In short, they have not one clue about how to run a successful restaurant/business.

    It's the definition of car-crash TV.

    Worst is they say all baking is done on the premises but they actually buy their cakes and such from local bakeries

    I still watch the show, because Ramsey cracks me up. Saw the episode in question....and holy bat ****, are those idiots crazy. Keeping their servers' tips and lying about the baked goods aren't even close to the most ridiculousness these people perpetrate.

    The baking was the only bit Gordon Ramsay praised them on too...and they told him to his face that they weren't bought in and were baked on the premises. :lol:

    I fell in love with Ramsey's show when he once told a chef that his food looks like a fox chewed on it.

    Is that a typical saying in the UK?

    Saw the episode too. These people are beyond crazy. I'm not sure why anyone who read the story or saw the TV show would want to go there and support them. They have no shot to survive this and they deserve it too.

    No, not one I've heard before, but Ramsay's pretty good at the ad-lib put-down. :lol:

    I cannot tell you how happy that makes me. I thought is was a brilliant ad lib and was hoping it wasn't a colloquialism.
