Roaches on prep table, raw meat next to fresh food leads to low scores

Posted: Updated:

It’s a tough week for a couple of north Georgia restaurants.

Greg’s Restaurant at 12560 Highway 27 in Chickamauga scored a 62. A 69 or below is a failing grade.

The inspector found several cross contamination issues, including an unopened, fully cooked ham sitting on top of raw ground beef in a cooler, loosely wrapped cantaloupe placed next to raw ground beef in the cooler, and several items uncovered inside a cooler noted to be “very dirty.”

A spoiled onion attracting gnats was found in a box of onions and a cooler in the kitchen was too warm. The inspector noted the cooler couldn’t compete with heat from the grill and needs to be replaced.

Greg’s Restaurant corrected its score to an 87 on a second inspection.

The McDonald’s at 5471 Alabama Highway in Ringgold barely escaped failure with a score of 70. The inspector saw employees wearing double gloves and changing the top glove only in between tasks, instead of removing all gloves, washing their hands and putting on new gloves. She also found raw eggs stored above ready-to-eat foods in the cooler and food being cooled improperly.

In Hamilton County, the lowest score was a 78, found at Taco El Cunao at 5813 Lee Highway. The inspector found a live roach on a prep table and more at a sink. They also noted the roof was leaking, some ceiling tiles were drooping, and the manager couldn’t answer basic questions about food safety.
