Chef Robert Irvine visits Chapin, South Carolina, to help turn around Sweet Tea, a relatively new restaurant being run by a couple with no experience in the restaurant trade. With the owner's father's life savings depending on the success of the restaurant Robert is determined to turn the restaurant around. Christine and Jeffrey have been struggling to keep the restaurant afloat for a year and there isn't much time or money left. The food comes straight out of a packet, can or the freezer. Robert turns around the menu and helps them to make proper sweet tea.
