Ridiculously fake show with fake waiters, busboys, and an annoying host who tries to act like Tony Soprano.
21 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This silly excuse for a reality show essentially hires actors to pose as busboys, managers, chefs and waiters and tells them to screw up as much as humanly possible.which they then do.This occurs as Willy Degal, owner of Uncle jacks steakhouse( which based on the very average yelp reviews rating, the only one who thinks his restaurants are great is him)observes and basically tells the restaurant owner that people that drop dead from food poisoning are usually very bad tippers, and that he needs to get his act together by trying to hire waiters that don't throw the food, and telling chefs that serving peanuts to people with a life threatening peanut allergy is bad for business, but fear not. At the end of the show Willie tells them they need to improve then shows up 6 weeks later unannounced( except for the 8 cameras to cover every angle) in shorts basically looking like "An army mule with bosoms" and saves the day. It seems his 3 minute pep talk was enough to put there work ethics into overdrive and now there totally different employees. Oh if only life were that easy. Anyway, its a badly staged fake show that gave up with even trying to look real last season.and remember folks, as Willie says at least 123 times every episode" The customer is king"
