Kitchen inspections, week of Oct. 5-11

POSTED: November 14, 2007 5:05 a.m.

The following are among the food service establishments inspected from Oct. 5-11 by the Hall County Health Department, as appeared in The Times Oct. 21.

The department scores on a 100-percentile scale, with 85 and above considered passing. Kitchens are inspected at least every six months and are required to post their score sheets in public. A new establishment that has never served food must score a 100 to receive an initial report. When a restaurant changes ownership, another inspection is required. The establishment must score a 94 or higher to receive a new permit. To register a complaint against a restaurant, call the health department at 770-531-3973.
