"American Diner Revival" is a reality series on the Food Network that is hosted by Ty Pennington and Amanda Freitag who are on a mission to help classic American diners across the country.

Amanda and Ty travel the country empowering local towns to lend a hand in saving their struggling diners, utilizing a combination of Ty's design and carpentry skills and Amanda's culinary expertise. With the help of the residents, this duo have only a few days to transform a cherished establishment in desperate need of a physical and menu makeover, and will use a good old-fashioned barn raising to ambush unsuspecting and deserving owners with the surprise of a lifetime.

George's Place in Carmel, New York, has been an iconic institution since the '70s, known for classic American food, cheap prices and charitable owners who constantly give away free food for those in need. But since George died a few years ago and left the place to his son Gus and wife Karen, the diner has struggled. The restaurant is losing money and the food reviews are getting more negative by the day. The décor needs a makeover, and the low food prices need an upgrade but first the menu needs food options that can deliver. Ty and Amanda need to figure out how to update the menu and overhaul the décor, otherwise, George's legacy will be gone forever.

And in Norman, Oklahoma, Amanda and Ty visit The Diner, which has been run by the same family for 15 years and heavily involved in the community, sponsoring local high school debate and softball teams, and helping the local homeless shelter. But when owner Mark passed away, leaving the restaurant to wife Claire and daughter Bonnie, The Diner started falling on hard times. Now Ty and Amanda need to fix the rapidly-deteriorating building and keep up with the increased competition from chain restaurants popping up in the area. Together they will use their experience to change the lives of local diners across the country, including Highland Park, Michigan; Monroe, Michigan; Nyack, New York; and Farmville, Virginia.
