If you plan to make dinner reservations, you'll want to check out CBS Atlanta's exclusive Restaurant Report Card first.
Every Thursday night at 11 p.m. CBS Atlanta News will share the best and worst restaurant health inspection scores when it comes to metro Atlanta restaurants.
This week, Hong Kong King Buffet at 5905 Jimmy Carter Blvd. in Gwinnett County failed a surprise health inspection with 53 points and a "U" for unsatisfactory. So CBS Atlanta News went to the business to question management.
"The manager is not here," an employee said.
Inspectors found raw whole fish stored over corn. Plus, a container of cut potatoes were stored on the floor and an employee failed to change his food safety gloves after coughing into his hand.
"I don't know anything," an employee said.
The employee told us to wait outside to speak with a manager, but no one showed up to answer our questions.
"I'm glad we didn't get sick last time and I hope they fix it so nobody else gets sick as well," customer Linda Brant said.
On the contrary, we found a good health score at another Chinese restaurant in town. China Cafeteria on Old National Highway in Fulton County scored a 93. In Cobb County, IHOP on Johnson Ferry Road scored 97 points. In DeKalb County, Mellow Mushroom on Ponce De Leon Place picked up a 94.
Last but not least, Arepa Mia at 209 Edgewood Avenue in Atlanta's Sweet Auburn Market received an "A" and 100 points on their inspection and was the featured restaurant of the week.
