The Food Network show "Restaurant Impossible" filmed an episode of the show at McLanks Family Restaurant off Paris Road. Robert Irvine, chef and the show’s host, brought his team on Sunday to renovate the comfort food restaurant. The TV show, which utilized local volunteers from the Columbia area to clean and redecorate, completed the project Monday evening, with a dinner to end the night.
