• Inspectors give DeKalb Mexican restaurant 63 score


    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A long-time DeKalb County Mexican restaurant got an unsatisfactory restaurant inspection score in the last week.    

    Channel 2's Carol Sbarge went to Monterrey Mexican restaurant on Lavista Road to find out more about the violations. The restaurant received a 63 out of 100 score.

    Some of the violations found at the restaurant on March 4 included molded produce, an employee contaminating prepped produce with soiled hands that handled raw meats, and a waiter handling tortilla chips with bare hands.

    The manager was not there when Sbarge visited, but an employee told her they addressed the problems immediately. The worker also said they were told a county health inspector will return this week to reevaluate.

    Before last week’s inspection, the restaurant received a 90 score during a November inspection.
