The Mystery Diners show Nader that he had a right to be concerned when they point to big problems w... (more)ith his assistant manager named Steve who is the direct cause of the customer complaints. He had been showing up to work intoxicated by putting too much shots in a traditional Greek appetizer called a saganaki (only calling for one shot), breaking the rules in conducting the Greek tradition of breaking plates and also tricking one of the busboys named Travis to get involved in his own get rich quick scheme. During the confrontation, Travis is spared from being terminated when he explains himself to Nader. Even after giving up the money to pay for the damages done to the plates, Steve is fired from his position and is told to get off the property by Nader before he calls the authorities. In his exit interview, Steve states that he won't apologize claiming Nader put him in charge to run the restaurant the way it was supposed to be run. The narrator revealed that Steve has started working at another restaurant. Travis has been doing a better job and is no longer taking bribes. Sarah is working hard and has a promotion to assistant manager on the way.
