People in charge at Wings & BBQ in Smyrna agreed to voluntarily close the restaurant during a recent follow-up examination, according to the food safety inspection report.
Although the eatery at 2331 Cobb Parkway SE received a 91 (A), it still had to temporarily shut down until a sewage leak was fixed.
According to the Oct. 18 inspection report: “While demonstrating the dishwashing procedure, as the water was running in the … sink, the grease trap overflowed and sewage spilled onto the floor.”
The leak was repaired to standards, and the restaurant was allowed to reopen, an addendum report showed. The manager declined to comment.
During the routine exam weeks before, Wings & BBQ was cited for temperature control risks, improper storage issues and substandard dishwashing methods.
The inspector noted that “the PIC (person in charge) was not able to properly demonstrate the method for manual dishwashing, which showed that dishes are not being sanitized.”
Other food-related notations included lettuce stored in a dirty container, blood on the outside of a bag of frozen fries and improper hand-washing techniques, the inspector noted.
During the routine exam, Wings & BBQ was also advised to thoroughly clean the entire kitchen and to keep equipment and non-food contact surfaces clean.
Here are other recent inspection scores from restaurants across the area.
