Wings spot passes follow-up inspection after initially scoring a 55

A wings restaurant in DeKalb County passed a follow-up health inspection after getting a failing score on its report last month.

Atlanta’s Best Wings, on the corner of Memorial and Columbia drives in the Belvedere Park neighborhood, scored a 55 on its March 25 inspection. It serves wings as well as subs, chicken and fish entrees.

On it’s follow-up inspection last week, the wings joint scored a 93.

The failing report said raw meat, including bacon and chicken, was not separated from ready-to-eat food. And foods that need to stay cold, such as dairy and meat, were kept at warmer temperatures, the report stated.

A cook did not wash his hands after managing raw beef and then touching his hair, according to the March report. Some food was also stored on the floor.

James Yang, one of the managers of the location, said he was “surprised” to receive the failing grade, but said a refrigerator had recently broken. Atlanta’s Best Wings ordered two new fridges that should keep the food properly cool, Yang said.
