El Taco Mexican Bar & Grill, 1050 E. Piedmont Road in Marietta, scored a 68 on its Wednesday health check. Any score below a 70 is considered failing.
The inspector said in the report that the “exterior of coolers, ovens, shelves — everything is sticky and/or greasy to the touch” adding that “the menus also feel greasy to the touch.”
There was “raw meat debris” on a slicer.
The restaurant was also docked points for a container of bleach sitting in the sink where food is prepared.
