Restaurants getting high marks in this week's Restaurant Report Card
A lot of high and perfect scores in this week's Restaurant Report Card. There were just a few establishments that had some issues.
In Hamilton County, Armando's at 7330 Hixson Pike scored a 70. Remember a score of 70 and above are considered to be passing. During the inspection, multiple moldy lemons were found stored with non-molded lemons in a box on the walk-in cooler floor. Wrapped raw food was stored with ready to eat food also in a container on the walk-in cooler floor. In fact, numerous food items were stored on the walk-in cooler or walk-in freezer floors as well as on the ground outside. Cooked food was not dated and food was left uncovered in the cooler. Spilled food outside was attracting flies. A good cleaning was needed.
McDonald's at 1117 E. 3rd Street received an 86. The inspector noticed the drive-thru clerk handling money then touching the fry scoop with bare hands, the scoop is then dropped into fries, touching food. Hands should be washed between the task of handling money and food. The restaurant did not have any sanitizer was getting it from another location. A single-serve cup used to scoop ice and grout missing from floor tile allowed old food to accumulate.
And Drakes on 7338 McCutcheon Road received an 88. The inspector saw an employee using a cellphone with gloves on. After using the phone, the employee did not shed gloves and continued handling food. Numerous employee drinks stored on food contact surfaces and stored in the same areas as foods.
In Murray County, Georgia, The Sand Trap on 1591 Springplace Smyrna Rd. in Chatsworth received an 80. The inspector noted that pre-packaged raw salmon and calamari was stored beside strawberries, uncovered cake, and over ready-to-eat foods. Food items prepared more than 24 hours were not labeled. Chemicals were being stored around food prep areas including hand wash sink, vegetable sink, and storage tables.
Loncheria Los Compadres on 1900 E. Morris St. in Whitfield County received a 78 on a follow-up. Raw and cooked food was not being held at correct temperatures. No sanitizers in the buckets and wiping cloths on counters.
