FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. - A family-run restaurant in Cumming has its first failing health inspection since opening 11 years ago. That Biscuit Place on Chattahoochee Industrial Park got a score of 57 on Dec. 13.
Longtime customer R.J. Morris said that inspection won’t keep him away from the restaurant, which is especially known for its homemade biscuits. Morris said That Biscuit Place is spotless and the food is delicious.
"I've been coming here for many, many years. This place is spotless. This place is delicious. This place it one of my favorite places in the area," he said.
Violations included mildew like substance on soda drink nozzles, sausage gravy not reheated to proper temperature and some food not held cold enough.

- Burglars cut hole in roof to steal cash, electronics from Target
- Crew reels in massive 3,000-pound great white off SC coast
Manager Mathew Page said the inspection score was absolutely devastating and exceptionally embarrassing.
Owner Becky Holmes says in the 11 years they’ve been in business, their scores have been A's and B’s.
She also said it’s clear there were some issues that needed to be addressed. She said when operating a small business, there will be variables in staffing that are unforeseen and unpredictable. Holmes said they are working with the Forsyth County Health Department to make sure all violations are well above standard.
That Biscuit Place is expected to be re-inspected sometime this week. We’ll keep you updated on the new score.
