GiGi's Place - Restaurant Impossible Update

On this week's episode of Restaurant: Impossible, Robert Irvine and his crew are in Covington, Georgia to makeover GiGi's Place. GiGi's Place is a soul food restaurant and the owner GiGi is having health problems.  Despite that, she is unable to step away from the restaurant because her daughter and her head chef are constantly fighting. Robert will need to help repair relationships in hopes of turning the restaurant around.

As I normally do with Restaurant: Impossible episodes, I searched around the Internet to read stories, comments and reviews about GiGi's Place 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:
  • "Food is delicious. You gotta try the turkey wing and sweet potatoes. Definitely would go back."
  • "The food was delicious, the ambience stole the show, service was better than most. I choose to eat here for my bday dinner however the weather had other plans lol it was a cold Sunday we went to brunch then bought dinner around 1pm the food was still delicious at 10pm that night. I would definitely dine again."
  • "Visiting after the remodel by restaurant impossible. Place Is so cute inside. The decor is just adorable. The staff was pleasant. And the food was good. We ordered from the menu, which was limited due to being out of everything.The mac and cheese was the best I've ever had. I will definitely go back for the cafeteria style of Sunday. Well done."
  • "Every time I come to Gigi’s everyone is friendly and accommodating. This time in particular my food was made especially fresh and service was perfect! Love it here"
