No restaurants in Hamilton County or north Georgia failed this week, but one came close.
58 Teriyaki Grill at 4762 Highway 58 in Chattanooga barely passed with a score of 71. The inspector found wet rags lying on prep tables, an "excessively dirty" mop sink, kitchen hood and dumpster area, as well as a compartment sink that wasn’t set up properly.
A few Chattanooga restaurants that didn’t fail, but posted notably low scores last week saw some improvement on second inspections. Shoney’s at 2318 Shallowford Village Road went from an 80 to an 89, Market Street Longhorn Restaurant at 129 North Market Street improved from a 79 to a 94 and the McDonald’s at 3413 Amnicola Highway brought its score up to a 97 from an 82.
Several restaurants posted high or even perfect scores of 100. Congratulations to:
