Roaches found in downtown Chattanooga restaurant

Posted: Updated:

Genghis Grill on Market Street may be located in a popular place, but it's not so popular with the health inspector.

A failing grade is a 69 or less, and the restaurant came in well below with a score of 57.

Inspectors found food stored in sinks and in crates on the floor, roaches crawling on the wall and no hot water at the hand sink. Those violations will earn the restaurant a follow-up visit.

Other restaurants in the Chattanooga area fared somewhat better. The next lowest score was a 78 at Poblano's Mexican Bar and Grill on River Street.

Inspectors found an A/C unit leaking on the prep tables and raw eggs stored over sour cream, among other violations.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, a number of restaurants in the Chattanooga area had perfect scores this week.

Taziki's on Gunbarrel Rd. chalked up a 100, and three Lake Winnepesauka restaurants earned perfect scores: Lake Winnie's Catering, Pizza Café, and Showboat/Dippin’ Dots.
