Eater readers dislike certain DC restaurant names for being cheesy, pun-tastic or offensive. Other times, the reasoning is less clear. Last week's Open Thread asked the question, "What Are The Worst Restaurant Names in the DC Area?". Turns out readers don't seem to have a problem with Eater's example answer, Sacrificial Lamb. But after combing through the fake answers (James Earl Ray's The Steaks? If only...), here in no particular order are nine reader responses to the question.
