Employee eating at food service line, handwashing issues cost restaurants
We’re happy to report no restaurants failed this week.
The lowest score we found was a 74 at the Krystal at 2560 Lafayette Road in Fort Oglethorpe. The inspector saw an employee eat food on the grill food service line, found raw eggs stored above ready-to-eat foods in the cooler, found hot dogs sitting out at room temperature to thaw and several cold and hot holding units in disrepair.
In Hamilton County, the lowest score was a 75 found at Choo Choo BBQ at 5936 Quintas Loop. The inspector found no towels at the hand sink, didn’t observe any hand washing by staff, found a water leak and a dirty refrigerator.
The Bourbon Grill at 2100 Hamilton Place Boulevard fared only slightly better with a 75. The inspector found a cooler not cold enough for cooling potatoes, missing thermometers, raw eggs stored over cabbage and food not covered or protected.
Several restaurants posted high scores or perfect ones of 100. Congratulations to:
Sweet Melissa’s, 1966 Northpoint Boulevard, Suite 126, Hixson
