Restaurant Report Card: Chow Bing 59 'U,' Roasters 100 'A'

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A failing health inspection prompted us to check out a Fulton County restaurant this week.

Chow Bing at 3330 Piedmont Rd. in Atlanta scored 59 points and a "U" for unsatisfactory. Pork and beef were at unsafe temperatures, food was stored on the floor and the inspection report was not posted.

"Were you storing food on the floor?" CBS46's Adam Murphy asked.

"No, we just had a delivery just come in at lunchtime when we were so busy and then you have a bucket of soy sauce and we did not pick it up yet," Chow Bing manager Gary Lin said.

"Obviously they have to be 6 inches off the ground," Murphy stated.

"Six inches when you have time," Lin said.

The health department recorded the violations last month during a routine inspection, but it's what they didn't record that has the manager upset.

"Have you corrected these violations?" Murphy asked.

"Oh yeah, we're a 90 something," Lin said.

"When did you get that 94 because it's not listed with the Fulton County Health Department?" Murphy asked.

"Four days later," Lin said.

The Fulton County Health Department never posted Chow Bing's re-inspection score online, just the 59, misinforming not only the public, but also CBS46.

Once we notified health officials they immediately updated the information.

"You deal with government of the United States, there's nothing you can do. Nothing, you fight it and you're going to get put down. I'm a small guy. That's all I have, this is my life," Lin said.

Now to some other scores, in Gwinnett County, Hibachi Grill & Supreme Buffet at 419 Pike Blvd. in Lawrenceville picked up 90 points and an "A." In Cherokee County, Cheeseburger Bobby's at 2295 Towne Lake Parkway in Woodstock scored a 91. And in Cobb County, Mediterranean Bistro at 3940 Cherokee St. in Kennesaw received 99 points and an "A."

Our featured restaurant of the week is Roasters at 6225 Roswell Rd. in Sandy Springs. If you like rotisserie chicken and vegetables, you'll find it on their menu and they received a perfect health score.
