So I forgot to comment?
Ok well, this place is amazing and makes me a much bigger Bobby Flay fan! The burgers are highly customizable! Unlike Zinburger!
The white queso on the fries was delicious! And the bacon gave it a sweet and salty taste that was to die for and I wish I have been here more than once!
The peanut butter shake was great and finally someone gave you a straw that you can actually suck it up through without blowing out a blood vessel! Lol
I added an egg to my burger. I don’t remember which one I got it looks like a spicy aioli on top, but I don’t see it on the current menu.
What I don’t like is the seating! The seats suck and are totally uncomfortable! Bobby did that on purpose (a dick move) to increase turnover by making you uncomfortable you don’t want to stay! So you order takeout or you order, eat fast and leave! I do not condone that theory! I think instead of increasing business and turnover it will drive people to choose one of the many many other establishments in the area! Especially after a hard days work and all you want to do is relax and have a delicious meal!
Also for larger customers as you can see, the seats are bolted to the floor! Ugh
Dear Food Network,
It is no secret that Robert Irvine is the most jacked guy on Food Network.
We want a show that focuses on his personal diet! We all know he doesn’t eat the food he cooks on Restaurant Impossible on a daily basis. We also know that as a chef he can still make healthy food taste great! We want a show that focuses on his personal recipes that him and Gail Kim eat on a daily basis!
Not only would it be entertaining, but it would help a lot of Americans eat healthy and still be excited to eat, instead of punishing themselves by eating bland diet food! We all know that pre packaged food like nutrisystem and weight watchers don’t work, because it doesn’t teach you how to eat! Once you stop buying their food bang there you go back up again. We also know how Robert hates pre-made, frozen and canned food!!
Please Robert and Food network help America! You can even name the show Robert Irvine helps America! Or America Impossible!
The obesity epidemic is reaching an all time high and if we don’t take the bull by the horns we are going to lose this battle!
For Gods sake! There is McDonald’s in schools for school lunch! That’s ridiculous! I had homemade lunch, made by our lunch ladies. Yes; they used government products like the infamous government cheese lol, but it was still light years better than McDonald’s! Pizza Fridays, pasta, chicken fajitas, burgers, meatloaf etc…
Maybe have Robert Irvine meet with obese people trying to lose weight and see what they are eating or meet with people that are close to being where they want to be, but for some reason, just can’t quite get there! Have Robert teach them the recipes he personally uses to get ripped and stay in shape, and does he use supplements? If so, what does he use?
Robert Irvine, please help America!
Ps: it’s my idea! I want to be on the first show haha! Even if I’m not the person he helps!
Ok so it says its live at 9pm and right now it’s 8pm
On demand has star salvation 2 posted already:
Well the new not yet kicked off (because its supposedly live) contestant gets to compete for a return spot:
Shame on you Food Network!
I would expect this from WWE, but not from you!
After combating countless “impossible dinners,” Chef Robert Irvine faces a daunting new challenge: save America’s most desperate restaurants from impending failure in just two days with only $10,000. In his new prime-time Food Network series, Restaurant: Impossible, Robert uses creativity and resourcefulness along with a lot of muscle in his fight to rescue these restaurants and give hope to the owners and their employees. Day one of the extreme mission begins with a thorough business assessment as Robert launches the restaurant into full service, closely observes the staff and kitchen, and determines their weakest spots. Then, he springs into action by updating the menu, retraining the staff and implementing aesthetic changes with the help of his design team. To ensure a packed house for the grand re-opening at the end of day two, Robert hits the streets to tell the community about the improved restaurant. Will the ruthless schedule, tight budget and ambitious task overcome Robert’s lofty goals, or will this tall order result in restaurant triumph?
I really like him! His no sugarcoating, no bs attitude is exactly what these people need!
Everything he says is exactly right! He hasn’t steered these people wrong! Ever!
Most failing places have the same things wrong:
1. Canned not fresh food
2. Poor management – where management is doing too much and not delegating or management is trying to be friends not bosses
3. Cleanliness issues (that stems from #2)
4. Poor service (also an issue of #2)
5. Of course poor design aesthetics – from ugly and dark, to over cluttered, to minimalist junk
These common factors are seen in almost every episode! If your business is failing forget restaurant, if you business is failing, check that list above first! Then if you are still reading check the tips section here.
If you are having partner problems:
Unfortunately, if you chose your partner poorly for example out of love (either physical or brotherly) (like I did) and both of you are on different wavelengths, then unless you can get on the same path, you are doomed!
This show is very important to watch if you own your own business, especially if it’s and type of brick & mortar (physical building not like a plumber, electrician, landscaper etc…) type place. Just because it’s a restaurant show doesn’t mean you can’t learn something.
In the show Robert lightens up dark places, and in one place he reorganized the kitchen for optimized performance. Let’s apply these concepts to a non restaurant
If you have a hardware store a fresh coat of paint, a couple design changes, might liven up your place! Maybe reorganizing your stock in common areas instead of common tools such as:
Bed, bath, outdoor, automotive ,kitchen etc..
You might have redundant stock, but people coming in that aren’t professionals, will find what they need according to the project they are doing. Which I am sure is the design home depot took in their mega stores. To make it easier for the common person.
Let’s apply it to another business:
A small boutique:
Maybe a bright coat of paint, maybe hang clothes in outfits on the wall, so people can see them together rather than just separate on the hangers.
That’s just 2 tips seen on the show, there are many more!
The design crew has a very limited budget, so they get very creative for cheap! One time they used paint stirrers and painted them and hung them around a light fixture to make a rustic creative light.
Like I said earlier if you have a business, you will want to pay attention. Even if you have a non brick & mortar you may pick up management tips, marketing tips etc!
Watch this show! It is fun to see him tear the places apart!
