Roaches found in two Chattanooga restaurants

Posted: Updated:

We don’t have any failures to report this week, but a few Hamilton County restaurants have some cleaning up and training to do.

Market Street Longhorn Restaurant at 129 North Market Street scored a 79. The inspector saw a cook drink from an open cup and not wash their hands before continuing with food prep and also wipe their nose with a glove. A roach was found in the kitchen and foods were stored at incorrect hot and cold holding temperatures.

Shoney’s at 2318 Shallowford Village Road didn’t fare much better with an 80. The violations included raw eggs stored above gravy, wastewater from a hand sink leaking from a pipe, utensils stored in a container with dirty water, a wet wiping cloth not stored in a sanitizer bucket and flood tiles in poor repair.

Thai Smile at 219 Market Street earned an 82. The inspector found roaches, debris around the dumpster, wet and soiled cleaning cloths sitting on prep tables and improper cooling methods being used with foods.

McDonald’s at 3414 Amnicola Highway also scored an 82. An employee was caught wiping their nose and handling a phone and then handling food equipment without washing their hands. Several employee drinks also were sitting out in food areas.

Good news for El Matador Mexican Restaurant in Fort Oglethorpe, which failed an inspection in last week’s report with a score of 57. The restaurant improved its score to a perfect 100 on a re-inspection.
