What did the Tik Tok Influencer told in his video
Lee said, "I received an email in the afternoon from an employee of a family-owned restaurant here in Vegas, He explained that the employee requested him to come and try out the restaurant as the business wasn't doing well despite the food being delicious."
In the video, the employee shared with Lee about the slow sales at the restaurant and how it's unable to pay the rent, because of poor marketing.
Some Influencers asked for high payments to review their restaurant
The employee also mention that, though they would like a food reviewer to come and evaluate the food, the only offer they received from an influencer required a payment of $2,600.
In the video, Lee stated "I didn't charge anything for this and I paid for my own food. This taste test is to determine if it's truly the marketing or if the food is not good."
Lee recounts a personal story while providing an honest review of the wings, pizza, and garlic knots he purchased at Frankensons, which totaled $86.73, told in his video.

Lee stated, "This is one of the best wings I've ever had, this is a 10," after trying a lemon pepper chicken wing.
Steele mentioned that his 4-month-old restaurant business was not going well and he was fortunate if he made $400 per day. However, according to him, after only a few hours of Lee's visit, the situation changed for the better.
Steele expresses his emotions and said "Our phone hasn't stopped ringing since then. I've sold more lemon pepper wings in the last two days than I have in the past four months. I made more garlic knots yesterday and the day before than I ever have before,"
Steele said "It's been overwhelming, it's been a blessing. This restaurant has been a dream of mine for 30 years."
Steele explained in the video that Lee's TikTok review has attracted customers from many states including Iowa, California, Utah, and more to Frankensons restaurant.
