That said, I'm a big fan of all Ramsey's shows...very very entertaining.
In 2008, we inadvertently ate at a restaurant featured in Kitchen Nightmares - in South Bend, IN. It was the ONLY PLACE OPEN on a Sunday and we were starving. The restaurant was smart and placed all references to Kitchen Nightmares on a wall one could see only upon exiting the restaurant.
Ramsey would have had a hemorrage if he saw the condition of this place. The carpet was all worn and we were served mediocre BBQ style food - with warm cole slaw. So I'm guessing the cole slaw was put into cups and left on a tray that was NOT stored in the fridge.
Looks like you might be able to stream the whole ep at this link.
It was season 2, episode 11.
Luckily, none of us got sick.
