Desi Romano’s Sports Bar & Grill is a struggling bar located in Chalmette, Louisiana. Though Jon Taffer usually likes changing a bar’s name during its rescue, he actually made the decision to let Desi, the owner, keep the original name of Desi Romano’s Sports Bar & Grill.
This episode is unique in that many of the problems are caused by Desi having a stroke, which led him to be absent from managing the bar. And as a result of that absence, the bar quickly went downhill. Though Desi has returned from his health problems, he isn’t quite the same. Now, he allows bartenders to run open tabs, which obviously isn’t great for business.
So, can Jon save Desi Romano’s Sports Bar & Grill? Keep reading for an update on everything that’s happened since the Bar Rescue team shot the episode.
Desi Romano’s Sports Bar & Grill Update - What Happened Next?
Currently, Desi Romano’s Sports Bar & Grill and grill is still open. So, kudos to Jon and Desi! There aren’t many news articles detailed the owners reaction to Bar Rescue, so I’m not sure how Desi personally feels about Jon’s remodeling changes.
Lindsay Romano, Desi’s daughter and a bartender at the bar, did post a status on her Facebook saying,
Sooooo now that it is finally all over with I can say……
#BarRescue was quite an up and down (or down and up) very crazy experience! (To say the least!)
Most of our #DESIS crew can say they learned something from this event and will completely turn this into a POSITIVE experience! Hopefully we can use #JonTaffers start of a great foundation and make the absolute BEST of it!
Recent reviews seem to be mostly positive, though there are a few negative reviews mixed in. There haven’t been any since the episode aired, but the episode was originally shot in October, 2016. So there’s been plenty of time for reviews to accumulate.
