Restaurant Impossible - Madison Street Retro Diner

Tonight on Restaurant: Impossible, Robert Irvine and his crew are in Muncie, Indiana to makeover Madison Street Retro Diner.  Madison Street Retro Diner is owned by Rita Watkins and her health is impacting her ability to run the restaurant.  Rita's daughter Melissa can't seem to step up to the plate to take over the restaurant.  The food at Madison Street Diner is some of the worst food Robert Irvine has ever tried.
