Restaurant Impossible - Frankie's - OPEN

Frankie's Restaurant Impossible

Chef Robert Irvine visits Frankie's, Three Rivers, Michigan, a staple restaurant that has been open in the town for over 30 years. The restaurant was purchased 13 years ago by best friends Tina and Jay but over the year the friendship has deteriorated to the point that they refuse to be in the same room as each other and as a result the restaurant is suffering. 

Combined with a gloomy and tired d├ęcor and a menu cooked with a microwave, the restaurant is on the brink of closure. Robert discovers that they don't even own the proper cooking equipment and has to spend a portion of the budget on pots and pans! They also renovated the dining room and updated the menu with new dishes. 

What Happened Next?

After filming sales were reported to be up 39% and the beloved onion rings are still on the menu and selling well! Reviews on both Yelp and Trip Advisor were mixed after Robert visited. It appears that the restaurant has changed hands and new owners are running the place, the reviews are mostly positive after it changed hands.
