Restaurant inspections, Sazon Mexican Grill

In an effort to optimize his investment, owner Wilder Rosales said he decided to change over his restaurant from Peruvian and Cuban cuisine to Mexican-style foods. Before the transformation to Sazon Mexican Grill was entirely complete, Rosales received a visit from the environmental health inspector.

During the visit to Sazon, 1700 Winder Highway, Suite 113, in Dacula, the inspector noted all new violations. Although most were corrected on site and some were mainly equipment related, the citations brought the food inspection score down to a 55 (unsatisfactory) score from a 99 (A), which was noted in June.

Violations corrected during the inspection include food stored in the cooler at improper temperatures, sanitizer solution mixed at substandard levels and foods cut with bare hands. All items were thrown out, according to the inspection report, and the inspector noted the requirements.

“We recently hired new employees,” Rosales said, noting the new employees are being training on all standards.

To make sure make sure all of the violations are corrected before the restaurant’s transformation to its Mexican-style menu is completed, Rosales said he hired an assistant manager days ago. She is also helping with the new menu and assisting with cleaning requirements.

Other citations include dirty vent hood filters, no drain plug in the Dumpster and a nonworking dishwasher.

“Every single thing will be corrected,” said Assistant Manager Luz Villanueba, who explained that, in the meantime, the dishes are being washed through other means that meet Health Department standards.

Rosales said he has brought in new equipment for the restaurant and will replace whatever is needed.
