(ATLANTA, GA) The table is set for another helping of our exclusive Restaurant Report Card. This week, a bar and grill is in hot water with the Health Department after receiving a score in the 60's, but our Adam Murphy still found a one-of-a-kind spot in Acworth with a perfect score.
Olde Towne Tavern and Grille in Cobb County
On Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw, a popular restaurant failed it's surprise inspection with 62 points and a 'U' for unsatisfactory.
The report said there was mold inside the ice machine, plus turkey, ham and chicken were at unsafe temperatures. An employee was also seen handling raw beef, then ready-to-eat cheese for french onion soup without washing their hands.
When asked if employees were expected to wash their hands, the manager said. "We always wash hands. We wash hands every single time."
According to the report that is not always the case. The manager replied, "I wasn't here when the report happened. I have no idea about that."
Apparently management also had no idea they posted an old inspection report, misleading the public. However, management insists they've cleaned up their act and this is the first failing score in 23 years.
- Subway on Brockett Road in Clarkston scored 90 points
- Newk's Eatery on Duluth Highway in Lawrenceville picked up a 96
- Figo Pasta on Marietta Street in Atlanta scored a 98
Golden Spatula Award
Here at BRIX on Main in Downtown Acworth they picked up a perfect 100 on their last health inspection. In fact, they've received four in a row which is incredible, so for that congratulations they are the winner of this week's Golden Spatula Award.
BRIX serves Hawaiian style flatbread, gluten-free macaroni and cheese, Ahi tuna, sliders and of course the desert.
