It isn't clear when Escobar will be ready to open for business. Whether the restaurant will serve turkey lasagna, or if it will be open 24/7 like the Waffle House, also remains to be seen. No matter the final product, it would behoove Mr. Chainz to engage in better business practices than fellow Atlanta rapper-turned-restaurateur T.I.who is being sured by employees of Scales 925 for unpaid wages.
