200 N 400 Center Lane, Dawsonville, Ga. 30534

Score: 91, Grade: A



9 Bill Elliott St., Dawsonville, Ga. 30534

Score: 81, Grade: B

Notes: Drink machine nozzles and diffusers with accumulation of mold inside. Nozzles/diffusers on drink machine need to be cleaned as often as necessary to prevent the accumulation of mold/debris. Nozzles and diffusers will be removed from drink machine as soon as they have a break in service and cleaned and sanitized at 3-compartment sink. French fry cutter with large accumulation of old potato debris in between dicing pegs. Take all pieces apart for cleaning and sanitizing after use each day. Accumulation of mold inside top of ice machine bin. Empty bin and clean and sanitize frequently enough to prevent build-up. Warmer cabinet in main kitchen holding spaghetti noodles at 115F - 119F. Pasta is a time/temperature control for safety food and once cooked and to be held hot for service, it must be held at 135F or above. COS: Noodles discarded. Cover noodles in storage to help keep temperature better and/or do not store in this unit as it is mostly for bread that is not required to be held at 135F or above. Chemical sanitizing dish machine wash temperature only reaching 88F. The required temperature per manufacturer and regulations is 120F. This temperature is needed to help remove food debris/grease on kitchenware/utensils so that the chemical sanitizer may be effective in sanitizing these items. Hood vents and ansul nozzles very dusty/greasy over stove/fryer in main kitchen (back cooking area) and front line grill area. To prevent any dust etc. from falling onto food/food contact surfaces, clean this area frequently to prevent build-up. Tops of rolling food bins in main kitchen with accumulation of food/food spills. Clean them frequently to prevent build-up that can contaminate hands and attract pests. Ceiling panels throughout kitchen are damaged - some sagging with previous water damage from repaired leak and some missing (above hood). Current ceiling panels are not type that can be easily cleaned (scrubbed). Begin replacing badly damaged/missing ceiling panels with plastic-coated moisture resistant type that can be easily cleaned. Floor needs a good cleaning under equipment in main kitchen area, 3-compartment sink, dishwasher, ice machine, prep cooler/prep top, vegetable sink and prep tables in back prep area - accumulation of food/trash/water - especially at floor/wall junctures. These accumulations can be attraction for pests. Floor/wall juncture needs repair beside 3-compartmetn sink - gap at floor/wall juncture, flooring needs repair (floor tiles damaged/missing) under 3-compartment sink and vegetable prep sink - damaged tiles allow for water to pond.
