We have plenty of good news to report in this week’s Restaurant Report Card.
The lowest score we found was at the Krystal at 301 W. Waugh Street in Dalton. The restaurant scored a 79, 10 points above a failing grade.
The inspector found cheese stored too warm, an employee drink in an open cup when it should have a lid and a straw, dirty equipment in the walk-in cooler and no written health policy.
Most restaurants scored well and we have seven perfect scores to report. Congratulations to:
