Two restaurants failed in north Georgia for multiple violations

Posted: Updated:

Two failures mar this week's scores in north Georgia, and the main issue that needs to be addressed is food safety.

In Dalton, Las Margaritas Mexican Bar and Grill scored a 65. Remember, a failing score is 69 or below. The restaurant does not have a certified food safety manager. They must have one in place by August 15th.

According to the inspection report, the restaurant does not have the procedures or items in place needed for "cleaning up a vomit or fecal event." The inspector directed them on this, and the violation was corrected on site.

They also had a few minor violations including the sanitizer concentration was too weak in the cloth bucket, foods including stuffed peppers and raw chicken were held at too warm temperatures, and some chemicals were in unlabeled bottles. Some rusting shelves needed to be replaced, and there were several plumbing leaks needing to be repaired.

In Fort Oglethorpe, Los 3 Amigos III scored a 68. The inspector observed the persons in charge not effectively managing conditions to ensure compliance with the food service regulations.  The restaurant must designate a training person in charge when the certified food safety manager is not present.

The inspector saw employee drinks and food on a cutting board in an active food prep area. The ice machine had heavy accumulation; it must be cleaned regularly to prevent build up.

No consumer advisory disclosure for raw or undercooked animal products was provided. Foods were not held at the correct temperature and those foods were discarded. Foods were also being improperly cooled.

In Hamilton County, health inspectors scored:
