The Plantain Express or just Plantain Express was a failed Cuban fast-food restaurant into which Victor Palmero invested $20,000. The doomed restaurant was mentioned only once. In the episode George Tries to Write a Wrong, Vic reveals that he withdrew the $20,000 dollars he had originally set aside for Angie in case she ever wanted to leave George, and put it into the business.
- Angie: ...Would you please close the secret account?
- Vic: Ah, too late! I spent the money years ago.
- Angie: All of it?
- Vic: Well... I had to learn the hard way that America is not ready for Cuban fast-food. So rest in peace Plantain Express.
- George: But that was a great idea Vic. "Mommy doesn't want to cook tonight kids so how about a bucket of little greasy bananas?
