Have you tried the special stuff made for drains, like drain-o?  Try going to Home Depot and ask them what drain cleaners they have. 

Don't put drain cleaners through your disposal: they are caustic and will corrode - even those with stainless steel blades and plates will not be helped by drain cleaners. First, how long has it been smelling ? How long has the disposal been installed ? Are you sure it is the disposal that is the SOURCE of the odor ? (check to see that there is a trap between your disposal and the sewer drain). Do you run a steady stream of water through the disposal when it is operating and then continue running the water for a short time afterwards ? Do you ever let stuff accumulate before running the disposal ?

THAT WHICH DOESN'T KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER. Bull. Reality is, it will usually hurt like hell and leave you with a permanent limp.

Restaurant garbage smells

Firstly, I think you should try talking to the restaurant manager him/herself. If that doesn't work, then I suggest maybe going to the city and asking who would be the right person to talk to, or file a complaint with.
