Restaurant Impossible - McShane's - CLOSED

Restaurant Impossible McShane's

Episode Recap

Chef Robert Irvine visits McShane's in East Syracuse, New York, run by owner Cindy who boasts about the chicken they serve but the problem is that no one is coming in to eat it. Robert finds that the restaurant and kitchen are both very dirty but it's not just the dirt in the restaurant that is a problem, the decor is tacky and in urgent need of updating. The food doesn't fare much better, although the half chicken impresses the rest of the food is lacking in flavour. Robert revamps the menu and the decor and adds a few menu items of his own.

What Happened Next?

Robert revisits and the restaurant is doing well. Cindy has kept the menu items that Robert added and the Half Chicken is still the signature dish and their top seller. The restaurant closed in May 2013 and they opened a food truck called The Chicken Bandit, it appears from their FB page that they were unhappy with the location of the restaurant but didn't want to be tied to a single location. They still serve their signature dishes including their 1/2 chicken and appear to be very successful.
