Restaurants Revisited: The Gross, Grosser and Grossest

From creepy crawling insects in the kitchen to appliances overrun with mold and caked in grease, Robert Irvine has seen all manner of filth in eateries over the course of nine seasons of Restaurant: Impossible missions. But no matter how off-putting and seemingly impossible to tackle a scene may be when Robert arrives, with the help of his team, he's always able to resurrect the space and reopen the business as a shining, safe restaurant worthy of a second chance.

On tonight's episode of Restaurant: Impossible, fans had the chance to look back at not just the dirty restaurants that have been featured on the show, but those simply too gross to forget, like Mama Lee's, where a cockroach landed on Robert's shoulder, and Smitty's Restaurant, which required the aid of a professional exterminator.
