A Buckhead Atlanta pizza restaurant was cited for having a “grimy” kitchen in its latest health inspection, which it failed.
The health inspector said the kitchen at Buckhead Pizza Company needed wholesale cleaning.
Buckhead Pizza Company, located in the center of the upscale Buckhead section of Atlanta on Peachtree Road, was cited by a health inspector said the kitchen was nasty, giving them an inspection score of 44.
Violations included all “equipment in facility is dirty”, “entire kitchen is dirty, nasty and grimy,” “observed wait staff touching lemons with bare hands and observed raw meats/eggs stored improperly throughout the facility,” according to CBS.
The owner was finally contacted and relayed the fact that he had hired an outside contractor to clean the restaurant.
The owner also ensured the media and future customers that the cutting boards, which the inspector said was worn and unsanitary, have been replaced. Those employees that were found to be handling lemons with bare hands have been sanctioned, the owner said.
Managers at the restaurant are now working to be certified food managers. The health department will return for a follow-up inspection within the week, the media said.
