• Dead flies, cockroaches cause Gwinnett County restaurant to fail inspection

    By: Carol Sbarge


    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Moldy turkey is just one of the violations that led to a Gwinnett County restaurant failing a recent health inspection. 

    El Paraiso on Dawson Boulevard in Norcross still had the old score of 87 posted Tuesday. The restaurant should have had the 53 it got on Oct. 23 posted. 

    One potential customer told Channel 2 Action News that she always checks scores and having the old score up is misleading. 

    Shevica Tailer says she wouldn’t eat at El Paraiso with a score so low.


    Violations included dead flies in containers of sugar, dead cockroaches, moldy turkey in the refrigerator and raw chicken stored on top of raw beef. Most of the violations were new ones. 

    No one at the Mexican restaurant in Norcross would talk to Channel 2 Action News on camera. 

    El Paraiso will be re-inspected within the next week and a half. We’ll let you know what the new score is.
