Best and worst restaurant inspection reports for the week ending Nov. 9, 2021

The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Health Department inspects restaurants twice a year and grades the businesses on a 100-point scale. Scores below 70 require corrective action. Restaurants are reinspected if they fail to meet critical standards.

To file a health-related complaint, call the Department of Environmental Health at 423-209-8110. The scores are original and do not reflect on-the-spot changes, which sometimes lead to upward adjustments.

Inspector observed same conditions as last inspection: grease is piling up on ceiling tiles, light fixtures, and on the vent itself; this needs to be resolved very quickly by a licensed professional.
