Lookout Mountain restaurant just barely avoids failure

Posted: Updated:

The Fairyland Club on Lookout Mountain has a view that’s on top of the world, but a score this week that’s right at the bottom.

A score of 69 or below is considered a failing grade and the restaurant just squeaked by with a 70.

Inspectors found raw, uncovered chicken stored above ready-to-eat food, raw tuna stored above produce and employee drinks on the prep counter. All of these were repeat violations.

They also discovered leftover food from previous days, including cooked pasta, Alfredo sauce and beef ribs stored at improper temperatures.

Chattanooga restaurant Dosa Hut didn’t fail, but still had several notable violations to score a 77. Milk, tomato sauce, and cheese stored at improper temperatures had to be thrown away. Inspectors found a bag of rice on the floor, raw chicken stored over ready-to-eat food, and several surfaces in the restaurant were dirty or in poor repair.

On the other end of the spectrum, two area restaurants received perfect scores. Congratulations to the Hardee’s on Killian Avenue in Trenton, Ga. and the Hillbilly Philly food truck in Chattanooga.
