Restaurant Report Card: Yasin's 48 'U', McGuire's 100 'A'

An Atlanta restaurant on Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard is in some hot water with the health department this week.

"When they came in last Wednesday I wasn't on shift," Yasin's employee Ebony Sealey said.

Yasin's Homestyle Seafood failed with 48 points and a "U" for unsatisfactory. An employee did not wash their hands with soap, raw fish was stored above tomatoes and utensils were not sanitized.

"Why not wash hands with soap? Everybody knows to do that," CBS46's Adam Murphy asked.

"If you come in we have a facility right there with the soap and water to wash your hands. What the employees do when I'm not on shift I don't know, but when I'm on shift my hands are always clean," Sealey said.

Management took us into the kitchen to show us how they've corrected most violations, but we still found a hidden health inspection, uncovered ice used in customers drinks and raw chicken sitting in buckets of water in the kitchen.

"This is how the health department told us to set it up, that way we don't have to be back in forth in the refrigerator, which is contamination," Sealey said.

"Have you ever had a score this low?" Murphy asked.

"No, we've never had a score this low since I've been working here," Sealey said.

Now to some good scores.

  • Frontera Mex Mex at 1430 Five Forks Trickum Road in Gwinnett County scored 91 points.
  • In DeKalb County, The Grove at 2761 Lavista Road in Decatur received 93 points and an "A."
  • In Cobb County, Cherokee Cattle Company at 2710 Canton Road in Marietta scored 100 points.

Our featured restaurant of the week is McGuire's Biscuits and BBQ near Lawrenceville in the city of Auburn at 1365 4th Avenue. They're open for breakfast and lunch and everything on their menu is under $10. Plus, they received 100 points on their inspection.
