Midtown Diner fails with a 50; McDaniel’s QN2 wins 100

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – On Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta, next to the Fox Theater, it’s hard to get ready at a 24-hour restaurant.

The restaurant doors were locked and the lights were off following a recent health inspection.

Midtown Diner failed with 50 points and a “U” for unsatisfactory. The report says chicken, beef and rice are at unsafe temperatures. Also, there was slime mold buildup on the soda dispenser and there were several live cockroaches inside the restaurant.

“It’s disgusting, it’s terrible, it’s terrifying and it’s not safe for people to sit down and eat,” customer Corey Dawson said.

There were several other good scores around metro Atlanta this week. In Clayton County, Wings on Wheat on Mt. Zion Parkway is back open after failing last week with a score in the 40s. Jonesboro restaurant cleared its pest problem by scoring 86 points in a reinspection . In Cobb County, Guthrie’s on Veterans Memorial Highway in Mableton scored a 91 and in Gwinnett County, Friends American Grill on Buford Village Way in Buford scored 99 points.

And at McDaniel’s QN2 on Johnson Ferry Road in Sandy Springs, they scored a 100 in their last health inspection. In fact, they’ve scored 3 in a row. Congratulations, they are this week’s Golden Spatula Award winner. They’ve been in business for about 20 years and they’re just down from Sandy Springs City Hall. On the menu, you can start with the grilled chicken salad. They also have a great chili dog, Brunswick stew, chicken, salmon, ribs, mac and cheese, wings, pulled pork, and a delicious brisket. Boy, it’s good!
