Uncovered meat and other violations add up for Mexican restaurant

Posted: Updated:

We have plenty of good news to share in this week’s Restaurant Report Card. No restaurants failed or earned scores that came close.

The lowest score is an 84 found at Fiesta Mexicana at 1422 Green Road in Chatsworth, GA.      

The inspector found several employee drinks in the food prep area and cooler that didn’t meet food safety criteria. State health codes allow employees to have drinks, but they must be single-service cups with a lid and a straw.

The inspector also discovered several buckets of meat stacked in the freezer without lids, found dirty rags and knives lying on a cutting table in the back of the store, noted few date labels on food to note freshness within seven days, and found a broken freezer gasket.

Several restaurants posted high grades or even perfect scores of 100. Congratulations to:

  • Chatterbox Café, 1817 Market Street, Chattanooga
  • Toscano Italian Grill, 6219 Lee Highway, Chattanooga
  • BBQ Shack, 2936 Lafayette Road, Fort Oglethorpe
