Kandi Burruss wears many hats and we admit that we respect her commitment to keeping herself wealthy.

On that note, the reality TV star opened up a restaurant with her husband Todd Tucker a bit ago and called it…Old Lady Gang: A Southern Eatery.

Can we admit that this fact kind of delighted us? It’s just so funny.

Recently, lots of people were buzzing about the fact that the spot had apparently received a “C” grade from the Georgia Department of Health after they were inspected.

Documents showed that the restaurant was cited for failing to maintain operational health standards; some of their “misses” included soil buildup inside of an ice bin, an employee not wearing a hair restraint, incorrect storage of a damp wiping cloth…you guys, it’s boring. The point is that things weren’t in tip-top order.

#OLGSouthernEatery is coming soon! Are you ready to eat with the #OldLadyGang?

But Kandi has since shared some good news on social media, saying, “We did receive a C because of minor things like we ran out of paper towels by the sink, or someone was missing a hair net… we quickly corrected those things & now have an A.”

She also apparently stated that she was taken aback by the lack of support; “I just don’t understand why people don’t want my family and I to be great. We love our customers and someone from my family is always there to greet people and give hugs.” But we digress.

Glad that was all sorted out. But apart from THAT, what’s the reception been thus far?

Family time is the best time! #OldLadyGang #CookOut #AuntBerthaThrewDown
According to real reviews across the Internet, OLG is doing….fine. If you’re super invested in this, you can check out their Yelp page.

Apparently, people are liking the food and that there are actually famous-folk-adjacent family members and friends running around. They aren’t as thrilled with the long wait times, the small portions and the possibility that one might have to pay for parking.

My lil buddy @majorgirl stopped by @oldladygang to show us some love! Thanks sis!

Eh. Okay. 

The perfect mix! #oldladygang

This isn’t the first hiccup that the passion project has encountered, by the way. Months ago, Kandi and her beau may have landed in hot water for unpaid bills for construction work completed on the restaurant. Hm.
