Bacon costs a BBQ points this week

Posted: Updated:

This week there were no failures in the health inspection results, but a few area restaurants received low scores and were cited for reasons like items stored on the floor, a wet rag lying on a container of fish and an employee's drink sitting over a prep area.

Remember, scoring a 69 or below is considered failing.

In North Georgia, The Choo Choo BBQ on Highway 27 North in Chickamauga got a B with a score of 82. This is still considered good. 
The inspector saw an employee drinking out of an unapproved cup on the prep counter, along with the salad bar being too warm. The controls were check and the food was taken to the cooler to make sure it was the correct temperature. Raw bacon was found on the floor of the walk-in cooler. That bacon was moved. 

In Hamilton County, Sonic Drive-In at 6915 Shallowford Road scored an 85. Points were knocked off for a box of cups on the floor, a leak, along with an employee's drink sitting over a prep area. There were also floor tiles in poor condition.

Uncle Larry's Hot Fish at 4767 Highway 58 scored well with an 88. They were cited for a wet rag lying on a container of fish and self-service items stored on the floor.
