    Leave it to Fox to take something the Brits did pretty well and muck it up.

    The show's boorishness is exceeded only by its dissimulation; not one frame of this thing--from the diners who seem not to notice that their table is surrounded by camera crews to the melodramatically villainous managers--is remotely believable.

    After seeing 5 seasons of Kitchen Nightmares and showing how failing restaurants needs Gordon Ramsey's help, I've decided to write an reviewAfter seeing 5 seasons of Kitchen Nightmares and showing how failing restaurants needs Gordon Ramsey's help, I've decided to write an review after part two of Burger Kitchen. This is a very great show to me. I feel Gordon Ramsey's trying to help the people asking for help even if some of these people are too arrogant about asking for help. The show does show some good drama it also show how dirty some kitchens that either doesn't know how to take care of their kitchens or left it in an sorry state. To me the best part of this show is that it shows where the restaurants are at so people in the local area or people who's going to visit an area near it can go out to eat when it's new and improve. It also shows some success and failures so people get the 411 on these local eateries. Those in who are or aren't in the restaurant business should watch the show. Full Review »

Yes he can be rough and mean and almost done right hateful, but I would be to with dealing with some of these bone heads he deals with. I live in the kitchen myself and to see some of these places makes me sick. Full Review »
