Unclean hands and rusty can opener make for a low score

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- We've seen weeks of clean plates and golden spatula awards in Hamilton County.

Eating out has been a pleasure with no restaurants failing to make the grade.

It almost ended this week with a grade of 71. Remember, a failing grade is anything lower than a 70.

At a score of 71 we talk about Rafael's on Hixson Pike.

According to Lead Restaurant Inspector Jack Falcon from the Health Department, the cooks need to practice better hygiene like washing their hands. Inspectors found rusty and dented cans, utensils need a better cleaning, the can opener was rusty and food was being stored on the floor.

Now with the low, comes the high and the winner this week can be found high atop Signal Mountain at Guthrie's with a 98. Congratulations!

Don't forget if you have a complaint about a restaurant call the Hamilton County Health Department at (423) 209-8110.

Also I'm starting to get a lot of emails with concerns and complaints; I've sent those emails directly to the Health Department for the inspectors to investigate.

Send your emails to me at jmescon@wrcbtv.com.

Have a great week and enjoy your meal.
