Chef Robert Irvine visits Rascal's BBQ & Crab House in New Castle, Delaware, a restaurant close to closure as there are no customers choosing to eat there. Inside is the dirtiest restaurant Robert has seen so far and a huge deep clean is begun to get the restaurant up to an acceptable standard. The restaurant is also given a makeover as is the menu with fresh dishes and a revamped catering menu and service.
What Happened Next?
After the show was aired, the restaurant was only open weekends, with the owner claiming it was difficult to get crabs. He was not happy with the way the restaurant was portrayed and claimed that those working on the show had spread rubbish, old equipment and food on the floor to make the restaurant appear worse than it actually was. He didn't keep Robert's menu for long after filming, claiming it was too fancy for his customers. They closed in May 2011.
