Chef Robert Irvine visit's Del's restaurants in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a restaurant that has been operating for 61 years. The food and decor is in need of attention but the biggest problem is the owner Marianne. The pressure from the struggles of the restaurant leads her to shouting at the staff and creating an atmosphere that is unappealing to customers so unsurprisingly customers are staying away. They claim that using the microwave saves time and they can the get food out quicker to customers. Robert challenges this and they have a race: Microwave versus Cooking from scratch. Robert won this race and proved that you can cook from fresh quicker than using the microwave. They have other strange kitchen practices including putting ice cubes into sauce to cool it down, what is wrong with the fridge? Robert gives the menu and restaurant a makeover and works with Marianne to improve her management skills.
