An almost perfect BBQ score and an unpleasant discovery at one eatery
Do you have dinner out plans for the weekend? We have the Hamilton County Health Department's most recent restaurant inspection report card. Thirty-three restaurants were visited this week and the good news to report: no failing grades.
Remember a failing grade in anything below a 70. But we do have one restaurant that almost didn't make it with inspectors and that's Hunan Wok on East 23rd street.
They score a 72 - and here's why:
According to Chief Inspector Jack Falcon, rodent droppings were found in the kitchen, floors and walls were in need of a good cleaning, spoiled produce and meat at the wrong temperature. Also, the cutting boards need replacing. Once, again the score is a 72.
But on the other end of the food chain there's always a high score of the week, and we say a big congratulations to the employees at BBQ Andy's in Soddy Daisy
How about a 99? Now that's cooking!
If you have a complaint about a restaurant, hotel or motel, daycare center or swimming pool, you are welcome to call the Hamilton County Health Department Complaint Line at (423) 209-8110.
It's great to get your feedback and all your emails sent to me are sent on to the Hamilton County Health Department for review.
