Founded in 1971 by Charles Ezell, Catfish Cabin was the place to go for fried catfish in the Memphis area. Almost four decades later in 2008, Charles decided it was time to take a break and leased out the building along with business. Unfortunately, under the new management, Catfish Cabin’s reputation took a beating and in 2016, Charles, with his daughter Rachael Ezell at the helm, decided it was time to take the business back and restore its damaged reputation.
Tonight’s episode was filmed back in November 2018.
According to the episode synopsis, after intense investigation and surveillance, Chef Ramsay and his crew find a passionate, but fragmented team, whose feuding is bringing down the entire restaurant’s morale. Ramsay will try to bring this failing restaurant back from the brink of disaster—all in just 24 hours.
In a teaser video, Ramsay investigates the Catfish Cabin’s kitchen and finds what he describes as a “cockroach duvet.”
