    Life after a makeover at Uncle Andy’s - Gregory Rec/Staff Photographer | of | Share this photo

    Dennis Fogg, owner of Uncle Andy's diner, chats with Don Greene in January while standing inside one of the diner's signature horseshoe-shaped counters. Customers have adapted to changes made by the Food Network show "Restaurant Impossible" but say they are glad the show left the horseshoe-shaped counters in place. The show installed the divider windows between the counters and the grill area.

    Nona Geyerhahn, left, and Alison Skillings eat breakfast in a booth at Uncle Andy's diner in South Portland in January. The Food Network show "Restaurant Impossible" removed the booth seats and replaced them with small square tables but owner Dennis Fogg brought a few booths back out because customers like them. The show also installed two televisions, suggesting that Fogg show sports or 24-hour news channels. Instead, Fogg has a video of a fireplace on one TV and the other, seen in this photo, shows a looping slideshow of kids showing off their plates of custom-shaped pancakes.

It has been six months since the Food Network show "Restaurant Impossible" did a $10,000 makeover of the restaurant. One change the show made was to install glass dividers, seen in this photo, between the horseshoe-shaped counters and the grill area.
