Not posting the correct health score can cost a restaurant on its next inspection. That was a lesson learned by a Vietnamese restaurant in Gwinnett County.
Pho 168, at 1932 Grayson Highway in Grayson, can now proudly point to its perfect inspection score. They earned a 100/A during a recent follow-up inspection.
However, earlier this month a Gwinnett County inspector questioned why the restaurant posted a score of 100 when its most recent inspection score was an 80/B. At that time, Pho 168 had not had a perfect score since March of 2011. And since then the restaurant had earned scores in the low 80s.
State health code requires all food service facilities to post for public view their most current inspection report.
The false score cost them points, and Pho 168 was given a 68/U on that routine inspection. The restaurant was also docked points for violations in hand-washing procedures and food temperatures. In addition, some cooked foods did not have expiration dates, and some dishes and equipment were dirty with food debris and grease build-up.
When the inspector returned for the follow-up visit, Pho 168 had corrected all the violations and earned its perfect score. The restaurant manager was unavailable for comment.
Here are other follow-up inspection scores from recently featured restaurants: Boston Fish Supreme, 3263 Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway Atlanta, 98/A; Cho Won Buffet, 3635 Satellite Boulevard, Duluth, 81/B; Grand Buffet, 1825 Liddel Lane, Duluth, 86/B.Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
