Chef Gordon Ramsay visits Flamango's, Whitehouse Station, NJ, to help a restaurant with a tacky tropical parrot theme, owned by Bill, who came out of retirement and Adele and run with their daughter Cheryl, there is a new chef who has been there 4 weeks and is not allowed to change anything, Gordon goes to visit them at the family ranch, he is shocked to find Cheryl lives at home as she cannot afford to move out. Gordon arrives at the restaurant, hates the décor and sits down to order some food. He orders an Ahi Tuna Appetiser which was very spicy, Tiki Platter which he spat out and The Flaming Tsunami, a Filet mignon cooked on a tile with garlic butter which Gordon finds is tough and chewy. Gordon returns to witness a dinner service noting the menu is huge,which confuses the customers and leads to the kitchen struggling to cook the huge menu. Gordon inspects the walk in and finds that it is unacceptable with old food items and incorrect temperature. For Gordon's makeover, he completely redecorates the restaurant in a colour that Adele hates and Willie the Aligator is burnt out the back. The menu is changed to american cuisine and the restaurant is also renamed as The Junction. For relaunch night, it is clear that Adele is still not happy with the changes and is extremely negative. Everyone else is happy and the relaunch is a success with the customers and staff happy with the changes.
