When we found out that Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares is coming to town and casting for Houston restaurants this week, we wanted to know which restaurant you'd nominate for a good walloping.
While a few more serious nominations were proposed, commenter Matthew suggested a Houston 'cue institution:
i nominate thelma's, not because she's got anything wrong with her place, but because i'd like to see the two of them square off.
You're right, Matthew. The ratings for that episode would undoubtedly be the highest the network has ever seen. Fox, you listening?
