Flies at sandwich line and a warm cooler knock points off scores

Posted: Updated:

After a couple of rocky weeks, we have some better news to report in this week’s Restaurant Report Card.

The lowest score was an 81, certainly not an A, but still a good step above a failing grade of 69 or less. That score was found at the Waffle House at 246 Connector 3 in Dalton. The inspector found items in the prep cooler above the maximum limit of 41 degrees, grime and dust build up on coolers, gaskets and fans, and noted the sanitizer used for cleaning tested too weak.

In Hamilton County, the lowest score was an 82 found at the McDonald’s at 6220 Lee Highway in Chattanooga. The inspector spotted flies at the sandwich line, saw employees handling muffins with their bare hands, found no dates to mark when shredded lettuce and cut tomatoes in the cooler were prepared, and dirty floor drains.

This week’s report also brought some good news for a north Georgia restaurant. Soho Hibachi at 1014 Battlefield Parkway in Fort Oglethorpe scored a 70 last week, nearly failing with several critical violations. However, the restaurant made the required changes and we’re happy to report it scored a 100 on a second inspection.

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