    don't they always find out that one of the bartenders is giving away too many free drinks or pocketing drink money as tips?

    Yeah, that old guy really slams those dives. The episode with the "urban Club" in Atlanta with the bottle service was hysterical.

    there was one black dive where the patrons had to be frisked before they were allowed in...all the blacks were sneaking in their own liquor & the club was always packed yet liquor sales were in the toilet...

    Fan of the show, watch it all the time... however... the formula is the same for each and every show:

    - Intro to the bar.... outside looks like shit, the sign, name and concept are all wrong for his neighboorhood.

    - Send in the spys who discover the food is terrible, the drinks are over-poured, the manager and/or owner are clueless.

    - Confrontation with the manager who doesn't appreciate being yelled at, doesn't agree that his ideas were failures, not so sure about these changes and crazy ideas of this so-called "expert'

    - John comes in screaming and pointing fingers, berating the poor staff who now has to clean the place spotless.

    - Next day he comes with his experts who will attempt to change the bar and the kitchen, always an impossible task in the beginning, but by the end of the show, they get it right. The kitchen is disgusting, rotting food, shit equipment. The bar is dirty, the arrangement of the beer taps is all wrong. Bartenders don't know how to make basic drinks.

    - Stress test and the place falls apart, can't handle the pressure. One server surprisingly is doing great, but one other employee is terrible and needs to be fired.

    - Remodel.

    - Staff is amazed at the incredible turn around. Gone is the old bar, the old seats and signs. Now everything looks so modern and classy. He tore down that horrible wall that was blocking everything and now added big new area for something unique (band, lounge, patio, etc). The owner's not sure on the new name just yet but loves the other changes. The talented server has been promoted to bartender and the loser employee has quit or was fired.

    - 6 months later sales have gone up 25%.... if you google the names of the bars, a huge % of gone out of business.

    pretty much the same formula of Kitchen Nightmares

    Theres one episode where the owner calls him out and says he "doesnt rescue the bar. he makes a brand new one with a name change and everything."

    I used to like it but it got repetitive and seems staged.
