This week, most restaurants came in with strong scores, but one spot had to do some cleaning up before the weekend. 

The Shoney's on Shallowford Village Drive scored a 62 at first. The inspector found the dishwashing area was dirty,  unwrapped/uncovered meat in standup cooler, and the cooler was leaking water into onions and chocolate mousse. Multiple food contact surfaces were also dirty and utensils were found stored in dirty water. The more serious violations included having no paper towels at the hand sink and multiple food items had to be discarded to spoiling and improper storage. The score was corrected to an 88. 

Southern Star on Broad Street came in with a 75. The inspector found  wet stacking of clean equipment, excessive mildew in ice machine, dangling vents over food prep area. The owner not able to demonstrate food safety knowledge, improper date marking, chemical bottles not labeled.
