The Amy's Baking Company meltdown continues. What began as a Yelp smackdown three years ago, has blown up into a national firestorm after the Scottsdale-based restaurant appeared on the season finale of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. If you haven't seen the show, you have to check it out.
Well, after the show aired, the Internet imploded on the restaurant's Yelp and Facebook pages, and Reddit (of course) jumped in the mix, too.
To take it back to where it all began, here are the top 10 comments on ABC's Yelp page. Not surprisingly, the restaurant gets only a one-star review. (Note: Reviews are posted as is, so sorry for any typos).

After hearing wonderful things about Amy's Baking Company, I immediately chartered a private jet from Florida to Arizona. On the limousine ride from the airport to the restaurant, I could barely contain my excitement to experience the greatest meal of all time.
I walked inside with the biggest grin on my face and was quickly approached by Samy who asked me if I had a reservation. I did not have one, though the restaurant was empty, and I jokingly told him that I was sure he could accommodate me. It became quickly clear that Samy did not have a sense of humor. He wielded a serrated bread knife and told me that he would slice me like the loaves of bread his wife bakes fresh if I disrespected him again.
These stars given purely for the entertainment value associated with the episode of Kitchen Nightmares they were featured on and the digital shit show that commenced afterward. I would probably go here, just to see if I could catch some awesome Amy B. bat shit crazy action in person, but I'm not a fan of Arizona in general. It's as if Satan himself took a big, hot shit there and then wandered on to vomit Texas up.
I'm REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hoping for a spin-off show on Bravo.
Come on Andy Cohen! Work it out!

I brought a package of "Putney Pasta Three Cheese Ravioli" (my favorite pre-made ravioli!!) to Amy's Baking Company and they were able to heat it very well.

This is the best tasting food I have ever eaten in my entire life! I could eat here for every meal of every day, it is that delicious.
Amy is also the most beautiful and inspiring person I've ever met. She is so nice and treats all of her employees very well.
This is definitely a real costumer and absolutely NOT Amy & Sammy from Amy's Baking Company.

Wow, what a fantastic place to eat!
I came all the way from Boston after I heard about their stellar recipes and how much Gordon Ramsay had praised them on television. After being shown a table, I looked around at all the other pleased customers enjoying their food. It took 2 hours for my food to come out but it was worth the wait.
I was extremely excited to try the fig/proscuitto pizza which, upon arriving at my table, looked like serrated kidneys lying atop bird shit. The breadsticks were less half baked than Dave Chappelle and the sparkling kitchen was marred by the blood of the most recent waitress (she was attempting to crawl across the floor and out the door after being beaten with a whisker by Amy).
