Restaurant inspections, Tech Diner

A 24-hour diner near the Georgia Tech campus failed another health inspection, but refused to shut down and take care of reoccurring food safety violations.

Tech Diner, 531 10th St., Atlanta, scored a 40/U on the routine inspection and was asked to voluntarily close or face a court citation. Management chose the citation, instead.

This was the second citation for the restaurant, which has had past scores of 44/U, 66/U and 74/C, the inspector said. Fulton County health officials have even conducted on-site training to help the staff improve.

Health officials expressed frustration over management’s failure to implement procedures to prevent repeat violations.

Among these violations, food was stored improperly, dishes and food containers were not clean and the dishwasher was not sanitizing.

Old retail containers were being re-used to store food, and they weren’t labeled or date marked.

Employees were washing raw meat in one compartment of the dish sink, while dishes were being washed in another compartment.

A large container of raw chicken and uncooked egg rolls were left out at room temperature without time controls to ensure food safety.

The inspector said the floor and equipment surfaces needed cleaning, and cracked and broken equipment and containers should be thrown away.

Tech Diner will have a follow-up inspection. Restaurant management could not be reached for comment.
