Good news if you want to eat out this weekend -- there are no failures to report.

Hamilton County restaurants had a particularly good week even with the health department going up and down Gunbarrel Road for a good number of routine inspections. However, in North Georgia one restaurant's staff needs to quite simply -- wash their hands.

In Ringgold, the Choo Choo Bar-B-Que scored a 71. Remember a failing score is 69 or below.

The inspector saw the employees not washing their hands between changing tasks -- like raw hamburger to the bun and vegetables. Yes, they did change gloves, but the health department says they've got to wash their hands too. Another example given in the report -- the inspector saw an employee going from cleaning prep tables to directly handling ready to eat foods. An employee was also seen handling dirty dishes directly to handling clean dishes. The food safety manager will conduct training with all food service employees on proper hand washing and focus on when to suds up. 

Additionally, the report notes that some foods were not being properly reheated prior to serving to guests, and properly cooling in the reach-in cooler and the walk-in. These foods included pulled pork and macaroni and cheese. Those foods were discarded.  The inspector recommended training all staff on proper cooling methods along with the times and temperatures foods must be held.
