Fun Time Cafe - Restaurant Impossible Update

This week on Restaurant: Impossible, Robert Irvine and his crew are in Joshua, Texas to makeover Fun Time Cafe. Fun Time Cafe is a failing Tex-Mex restaurant owned by Wayne and Carmen who are husband and wife.  They are serving sub-par food and the environment inside the restaurant is toxic.  The restaurant is also taking a toll on Carmen and Wayne's relationship.  Robert Irvine will need to clean up the restaurant and their relationship to help turn this restaurant around.

As I normally do with Restaurant: Impossible episodes, I searched around the Internet to read stories, comments and reviews about Fun Time Cafe to get an idea of how the restaurant is doing since Robert Irvine visited, and here is what I found (note - all reviews are post Restaurant: Impossible):

Positive Reviews:
  • "Excellent food and service, love this place"
  • "I love this place! Everyone is so friendly and the food is great!"
  • "Nice atmosphere and good food. Always dependable."
  • "Love the new remodel and menu! Food taste great and service is amazing!!! Keep it up!"
  • "This place has come a long ways! You can’t go wrong ordering anything off the new menu. The chocolate cake is homemade and delicious ! 10/10!!"

Negative Reviews:
  • "Greasiest food I ever had, chicken strips had no flavor, had chips and salsa with queso and never got offered more chips. Not to mention getting charged 4% tax on each item and then the additional 8.25% on everything at then as well."
  • "The food was cold and nasty. Tasted out of can"
  • "I was so disappointed in pretty much everything...the prices posted online and the menu they had in the actual restaurant was the same but then they charged us more. My hamburger was a disgusting soggy nasty tasted as bad as it looked....i was really sad after all the great things i heard about this place.."
  • "Honestly I don't like what they've done to the restaurant. That home feeling is totally gone"
