Restaurant Impossible - Mama Lee's Soul Food Restaurant - CLOSED

Mama Lee's Soul Food Restaurant Restaurant Impossible

Chef Robert Irvine visits Mama Lee's Soul Food Restaurant in San Antonio, Texas, where he finds Mama Lee's Soul Food Restaurant is in dire need of his help. The restaurant has struggled for 4 years making no money and is now weeks away from closing for good. 

Robert is shocked at what he finds, as well as the staple outdated restaurant, the place is crawling with roaches and other vermin. Robert has to call in reinforcements from makeover show Kitchen Cousins to help with the monster makeover. 

What Happened Next? 

Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews following Robert's visit were mostly good with the odd bad review. Four months later, Ken reports that business is up 15% and he is seeing new customers as well as beginning to pay off some debts. 

The restaurant closed in July 2013 after failing a health inspection with a disgusting 42 de-merits/violations including roaches and rodent droppings, which is a shame as it was a problem before Robert arrived and after all of his help they went back to their old unsanitary ways.
