UPDATE: The restaurant passed a re-inspection Wednesday with a 94/A.
Two of the new violations included a black mold-like substance on an ice machine flap and several missing ceiling tiles in the kitchen.
UPDATE (Feb. 19): The Gyro Bros on West Peachtree failed a followup health inspection Friday with a 45/U, records show.
The report noted violations including not posting the current inspection for customer view, a buildup of food debris behind kitchen equipment and “several wiping cloths stored throughout front food service area soiled and unclean to sight and touch.”
According to the report: “Facility is to close due to second unsatisfactory score ‘U.’ Facility manager closed voluntarily for ‘maintenance.’”
A call to the restaurant was not answered during its normal business hours Monday.
ORIGINAL STORY (published Feb. 6): The third location of an Atlanta-based restaurant chain has failed a health inspection in less than five months, Fulton County records show.
Scores below 70 are considered failing.
According to the recent report for the downtown location, there was a “failure to provide active managerial control to prevent major foodborne illness violations.”
Officials also reported an employee handling “bread/burger buns” with bare hands and beef thawing at room temperature.
A woman who answered the phone at Tuesday afternoon said a manager was not immediately available for comment.
In November Gray Saleh, owner of the family-owned business, said the business tries “to keep the score as high as possible, because that’s what people deserve.”
Follow-up inspections are generally completed within 10 days of the original evaluation.
