CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Dining out this weekend? The inspectors at the Hamilton County Health Department had a great week, with no failing grades to report among the 49 restaurants visited.

But we always include the low score of the week. Remember, a failing grade is anything lower than a 70.

At a score of 74 there's a lot of cleaning needed at the Hunan Wok on East 23rd Street in Chattanooga. According to Chief Health Inspector Jack Falcon the following violations were found:

  • stained and dirty cutting boards
  • floors and walls need repairing
  • rodent droppings found in food preparation area
  • water leaking from the ceiling onto food in the walk-in cooler


With the low comes the high and we have a tie for those honors.

Congratulations to Firehouse Subs on Gunbarrel Road and the Krystal in Soddy Daisy, both with a score of a 97. Now that's hard work.

Please remember if you have a complaint about a restaurant call the Hamilton County Health Department Hotline  at (423) 209-8110 or email your complaint to me.

Enjoy your meal!
