Restaurant Report Card: Soule' 59 'U,' Big Joy 100 'A'


It takes a little heart and soul to bounce back after failing a health inspection.

"Is the food you're serving at the right temperature?" CBS46's Adam Murphy asked Soule's manager.

"Absolutely," Soule' manager Anthony Ross said.

Soule', at 1820 Austin Dr. in Decatur, scored 59 points and a "U" for unsatisfactory. Inspectors found numerous flies in the kitchen, a pan of fish and rice stored at an unsafe temperature and the report says "employees touching hat, glass, nad scratching and not washing hands." "Nad scratching?" We haven't seen that violation before.

"I didn't question her (inspector) on what she said she saw or didn't see, but if they had touched their private area they would have been fired immediately. I don't play that. That's disgusting," Ross said.

Soule' management told us they had the health department train all of their employees in food safety. Soule' received 95 points and an "A" on a reinspection on October 2, 2014.

Now to some other scores.

In Gwinnett County, Eastern China Taste at 1000 Peachtree Industrial Blvd. in Suwanee received 96 points and an "A." In Clayton County, Taco Bell at 8127 Tara Blvd. in Jonesboro picked up a 97 and an "A." And in Fulton County, Smokey's BBQ at 3850 Jonesboro Rd. in Atlanta scored 99 points and an "A."

Our featured restaurant of the week is Big Joy on Delk Road in Marietta. They serve authentic Korean food and everything on their menu is under $10. Plus, they received a perfect health score.
