On this week's episode of Restaurant: Impossible, Robert Irvine and his crew are in Shreveport, Louisiana to makeover Eddie's. Eddie's is a seafood restaurant owned by Mavice, who is following her father's legacy.  The restaurant is known for its stuffed shrimp, but this signature dish and the restaurant aren't what they used to be. Mavice's inability to adapt is impacting the food, finances and her family.  Robert will need to convince Mavice to make the necessary changes to save the restaurant and their family's legacy.

On this week's episode of Restaurant: Impossible, Robert Irvine and his crew are in Granada, Mississippi to makeover 333 Restaurant. 333 Restaurant is owned by Allyson, who is a full-time art teacher. Despite being a teacher, she requires the restaurant's manager to contact her before making every decision, no matter how small.  This means there is no clear leader in the restaurant and the restaurant is in danger of closing.  Since Allyson wants to continue to teach, Robert needs to get her to trust her staff in running the restaurant.
