  • Restaurant: Impossible

    A few years ago, Keith and Stephanie's restaurant, Mama E's Wings & Waffles restaurant in Oklahoma City, was thriving and was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. But a failed attempt at opening a second location put a strain on their finances — and their marriage. Chef Robert Irvine must get this volatile couple communicating again if he's going to be able to save their restaurant.

  • Restaurant: Impossible

    The nearly three-year-old Fork Diner in Calhoun, Ga., never quite took off, and owners Gray, Diana and Michael are now faced with a failing business and a suffering friendship. Chef Robert Irvine will have just two days to address the boring food, lack of cleanliness, disinterested staff and an owner with one foot out the door.

    Daniel is the owner and operator of a successful sawmill, and thought he would be able to run Big Jim's Bama Q in Hammondville, Ala., when he purchased it ten months ago. But his inexperience and naiveness in thinking he could sit back and cash in on the restaurant's reputation has instead left him seeking Chef Robert Irvine's help. Robert needs to find a way to make this restaurant distinctly Daniel's, and that means new food, a new look and new knowledge and passion to turn this dump into a barbecue destination.

    Chef Robert Irvine tackles his first-ever theme restaurant, when he comes to the aid of Buzz, the owner of Cave Inn BBQ, a new caveman/dinosaur themed restaurant. Robert and his team will need to completely overhaul the "decor," which currently consists of a few inflatable dinosaurs and foam rocks glued to the wall, as well as the kitchen, which is sent into chaos by Buzz's brother Skip, who puts more energy into his Hollywood dreams than this Winter Garden, Fla., eatery.

    When Chef Robert meets Jordan, the self-described stubborn owner of the Portu-Greek Cafe in Hudson, Fla., he knows that he's in for a challenge. With all the squabbling over control of the restaurant, Robert is forced to bring the whole family to the beach and involve them in an exercise that forces this bickering bunch to cooperate. It's Robert's challenge to take the reins away from Jordan and keep this loud and boisterous Greek family from self-implosion.
