A DeKalb County Checkers failed a health inspection Monday with “numerous flies” found throughout the facility, along with other issues.
The restaurant, located at 2775 Panola Road in Lithonia, received a 58, according to the inspector’s report. The report says the inspector saw an employee not wash their hands after handing a cell phone; walls with food splatter and black substance; and equipment with food debris and grease build up.
The restaurant and parent company didn’t respond to a request for comment.
Restaurants that fail are typically re-inspected within 10 days.
