A popular Buford Highway Mexican restaurant known for seafood failed its recent health inspection with a variety of concerns.
Mariscos El Veneno, located at 5082 Buford Highway, Doraville, received a 61 last Monday, according to the report. The inspector noted seeing employees using bare hands to prepare food, as well as not properly washing their hands.
Cook Oscar Arroyo said this Monday he expects the restaurant to pass the next inspection without trouble.
“Everything is clean,” he said.
The report also knocked the establishment for keeping food too long and not properly labeling.
Restaurants that fail are typically re-inspected within 10 days.
