DEKALB COUNTY, Ga - A popular DeKalb County restaurant failed its recent health inspection.
The Brick Store Pub is a popular place for food and its wide variety of beers. The pub received an 81 when it was inspected last August. Nearly a year later, an inspector gave it an unsatisfactory grade.
The restaurant got a failing score on its inspection with a 59.
“(I) can’t believe it, We go there all the time. Yeah, we eat there a lot, especially lunch, dinner. We go after work sometimes,” customer Ashley Rosiek said.
The inspector found that certain foods were not kept at a cold enough temperature including onions, tomatoes and chicken strips. The inspector also observed water leaking near the upstairs dining area and an employee not using an effective restraint for his/her hair, beard or mustache.
Channel 2’s Carol Sbarge went to the pub to ask about the violations.
The general manager didn’t want to go on camera, but talked to Sbarge on the phone.
He said, the day of the inspection, some of the cooling equipment had malfunctioned so that’s why some of the food wasn’t cold enough.
He said someone was already coming out to fix the equipment. The inspection report confirms that a repairman arrived during the inspection.
The general manager said every violation is being addressed before the re-inspection, which is expected within the next week.
Rosiek, a regular at the pub, told Sparge she will not be going back to the pub until it has a passing grade.
