Good news this week -- a restaurant closed by the local health department has been approved to reopen after their most recent inspection.

Tacos El Rojo on Dalton's South Thornton Avenue scored a 95 on their latest followup inspection. They recently had a few food-handling issues and some trouble keeping certain items hot or cold enough. This time, the inspector found that the marking of dates on containers was not consistent and the crew needs to clean a hood. For now, Taco El Rojo has been given the OK to re-open, however there will be another followup inspection. 

Over in Rossville, Rollin' in the Dough-Nuts on Direct Connection Drive comes in with the lowest routine inspection score of the week -- 73. That's considered a C grade. Washing of employees' hands was an issue -- due to the hand sink not working at all -- plus the 3 compartment washing sink didn't work either according to the inspector. There are additional violations including water being stored in used tea containers, the mixer was not clean, and employee drinks were not kept in the correct area. The report notes all these violations mean that the person in charge was not performing their responsibilities.
