Dirty utensils and mold for one Bell, another scores near perfect
It was a busy week for Hamilton County health inspectors, who visited 35 restaurants. There's great news for diners on this long Memorial Day weekend - not a single failing grade.
The low score of the week which really wasn't that bad was Taco Bell in Lookout Valley with an 84. Remember, a failing grade is any score lower than a 70. Inspectors found the dishwasher with no detergent, also the reach-in freezer had a temperature of 32 degrees and it should be zero or below. Also some of the cooking utensils were dirty and there was mold on the soda machine.
Now for the high score of the week, and it's a tie at 99. Way to go Zaxby's on Highway 58 and another Taco Bell, this one a 99 in East Brainerd.
As always, if you have a compliant about a restaurant, hotel or motel even a place where you work out, call the Hamilton County Health Department Complaint Line at 423-209-8110. Someone will answer your call weekdays between 8:00am and 4:00pm.
Enjoy your weekend, and please be safe this holiday!
