29 North 400 Center Ln., Dawsonville, Ga. 30534

Score: 80, Grade: B

Notes: No paper towels at hand sink in cook/prep area of kitchen. Hand sinks must be properly stocked with paper towels at frequently used hand sinks to accomplish proper handwashing/cleaning procedures as required by regulations. COS: PIC (GM) restocked paper towel dispenser. Shell eggs out on counter top at 75F, stacked cooler freezer with cooler half ambient temperature external thermometer 55F and internal temp 53F and holding time/temperature control for safety foods at 44F - 54F (See temperature observations). COS: Shell eggs voluntarily discarded - discussed using time instead of temperature control for shell eggs if they need to be out of cooler during busy times. Written procedure would be needed to use time for shell eggs. Stacked cooler/freezer stocked about 2 hrs - Time/temperature control for safety foods moved to walk-in cooler and maintenance call placed for cooler. Current inspection report not posted in lobby or at drive-thru window. Most current inspection must be posted in public view in both these locations. COS: This inspection will be posted in both locations. Cooler/freezer door gaskets torn on 1-door lowboy freezer under French fry station and 1-door lowboy cooler in drive thru area. Gaskets need to be kept in good repair to allow for easy cleaning and to help units keep proper temperature by having good sealing doors. Large accumulation of grease/food debris inside cooler under grill used to cook hamburgers that is not in-use. To prevent attraction for pests, keep these areas cleaned frequently. Floors still need better cleaning under all equipment in cook area - under cook line equipment, steam line equipment, ice machine and stacked cooler/freezer - accumulation of trash/grease/water/food in these areas. Clean more frequently to prevent these accumulation that can be attraction for pests.
