ATLANTA — A metro Atlanta Waffle House that had a near perfect score failed a health inspection in part because of cockroaches.
In October, the Waffle House at 5335 Roswell Road in northeast Atlanta got a 99 on a health inspection. It dropped more than 40 points when it was inspected Monday with a score of 58.
In the inspection report, the inspector noted seeing live cockroaches throughout the facility and said the manager was not able to provide pest control logs.
Other violations included a cook handling raw bacon and then bread, black substance on the interior of the ice machine and some food in cooler not held cold enough.
Sbarge reached out to Waffle House’s Corporate Office about the violations.
In an e-mail statement, Waffle House Inc. said,
Waffle House also said its goal is to offer a positive experience to all their guests. The company apologized for disappointing customers in this case.
