Undercooked chicken found at Mexican restaurant

Posted: Updated:

Most restaurants in Hamilton County fared well in this week’s Restaurant Report Card, but one location in north Georgia fell below passing. 

In Hamilton County, China Moon at 5600 Brainerd Road posted the lowest score this week with a 76. That’s seven points above a failing grade of 69. The inspector found raw meat stored over cut fruit, floors and walls in bad repair, and a dirty can opener.

In north Georgia, Tijuana’s 2 Mexican Restaurant at 2311 Chattanooga Road in Dalton scored a 69. The inspector found undercooked chicken, cheese, lettuce and beef stored too warm, and a hand sink in the prep area without hot water. The restaurant improved its score to a 90 on a second inspection.

Good news for two Hamilton County restaurants that failed last week. JC’s Family BBQ improved its score from a 63 to an 87 and Taco Roc went from a 65 to a 91.

Several restaurants posted perfect scores of 100. Congratulations to:
