State Health Inspectors visited the 5th & Taylor restaurant in Germantown Thursday evening for nearly two hours, during which time they embargoed 20 pounds of food. The restaurant scored a 59 on its first inspection in fourteen months. Violations include chicken only cooked to 117 F, employees handling ready-to-eat foods with their bare hands, no paper towels or soap at sinks, water dripping from the ceiling into a container of shredded cheese, quail being held at only half the proper temperature, and beef stored at 48 degrees.
The Tennessee Department of Health conducted a routine inspection of Taqueria El Millon #3 at 5325 Mt. View Road in Antioch on Thursday. Among the violations that earned the restaurant a score of 65 on the inspection: An employee reused leftover pepper salad that wasn’t eaten by a customer and served it to another. Employees were also washing their hands using only water, no soap.
