Kitchen Nightmares - Burger Kitchen Update

Burger Kitchen in Los Angeles, California appeared on Kitchen Nightmares in November of 2011 and the restaurant was featured on two back-to-back episodes.  This post is to update what went on before, during, and after Gordon Ramsay and Kitchen Nightmares visited Burger Kitchen.

  • Alan Saffron actually wrote a book called Gentle Satan: My Father, Abe Saffron
  • Here is an article about Abe Saffron's estate and Alan wanting his share of the estate. (Link)
  • Here is someone from Chowhound describing their experience on the show. (Link)
  • Burger Kitchen was supposedly under new management in August 2011, right before they appeared on Kitchen Nightmares. (Link)
  • Burger Kitchen closed in February 2012, just a few months after their Kitchen Nightmares episode aired. (Link)
  • Here were the Yelp reviews of Burger Kitchen, which weren't too good and averaged about 3 stars out of 5. 


It didn't take too long for Burger Kitchen to close after Gordon Ramsay visited for Kitchen Nightmares. This was one of the more controversial episodes that lasted multiple episodes due to the owners being interesting.  This restaurant is marked as 'Closed' on the Kitchen Nightmares Updates Page and you can visit that link for updates on all restaurants that have appeared on the show.
