Cobb diner scores 60 on restaurant inspection

The owner of a Cobb County restaurant said he will make the necessary changes to improve the eatery’s latest food service inspection score.

Diner Bakery Company at 3150 Cobb Parkway NW Suite 200 in Kennesaw received a 60 on its Feb. 18 inspection. Anything below a 70 is considered failing.

The diner was cited for not having paper towels at a hand sink, uncovered food in its walk-in cooler, soiled tea nozzles, inaccurate thermometer readings in the dessert walk-in cooler, skillets stored on “heavily soiled” towels, broken pieces of equipment, heavy buildup on top and inside the dish washing machine and dirty nonfood contact surfaces, according to the Cobb County Environmental Health Department report

Billy Liakakos said the company will “make the corrections we need to make” in order to bring their score up to at least 90. He also said he’s taking steps to address the inaccurate temperature readings inside the cooler. Liakakos added they’ve already reached out to the environmental health inspector to schedule a follow-up visit.

“We’ve had great scores here, and it will continue to be a great score,” he said. 

Diner Bakery Company received a 92 on its July 3, 2018 inspection and a 97 on its Nov. 27, 2017 report. The follow-up inspection is tentatively scheduled for March 4.
