Smyrna Restaurant Inspections: ‘Observed Raw Chicken Thawed In Vegetable Sink’

SMYRNA, GA — That favorite restaurant bar or tavern you love may have some good food, but do you really know how clean it is? No matter what they serve, it all seems to taste better when you know the score from their latest food inspection.

Here are some restaurant and food service inspections conducted recently in Cobb County. To see more information about the eating establishments, click on the date or score.
Georgia’s food industry is rated using a point system. Each item is valued between 1 and 9 on an inspection form. Points can be deducted (often shown in red) as well. An eatery can have more points deducted based on the greater risk of sickness and repeat violations mean even more can be subtracted from a restaurant’s score.
Scores from 90 to 100 are signified by the letter A. From 89 to 80 is a B, from 79 to 70 is a C and a U is for less than 70.
