This doesn’t sound very appetizing!
Both Paula Deen├óΓé¼Γäós Savannah restaurants, Lady & Sons, and her brother Bubba├óΓé¼Γäós place, Uncle Bubba├óΓé¼Γäós Oyster House, have a history of icky violations including Bubba’s joint getting hit with a “B” grade last year!
Bubba’s restaurant landed an 83 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ just 4 points above a ├óΓé¼┼ôC├óΓé¼┬¥ — for inadequate hand washing facilities and improper cold holding temperatures. Yum!
The inspector wrote:
├óΓé¼┼ôHand sink used as a dump sink. Repeat violation. .. Observed potentially hazardous food cold held at greater than 41 degrees.├óΓé¼┬¥
That was in Feb 2013, and nothing really changed in June 2013, where it got ANOTHER B rating at an 84 score!
They noted that month:
├óΓé¼┼ôNo soap or paper towels located at hand washing sink ├óΓé¼┬ª dirty knife magnet holder ├óΓé¼┬ª old food buildup on shelves in coolers [that] dries and falls onto food below ├óΓé¼┬ª observed build-up of food debris, dust or dirt ├óΓé¼┬ª [and] dirty dumpster areas.├óΓé¼┬¥
Most recently, Lady & Sons has been under fire for violations as well! On Feb 2nd of this year, the inspector noted:
├óΓé¼┼ôSalad bar/buffet plates/bowls [were] not properly protected or inverted to prevent contamination. No chemical sanitizer strips available for testing the sanitizer containers.├óΓé¼┬¥
So they landed 98 and ├óΓé¼┼ôA├óΓé¼┬¥ grade.
Wait, what?? We thought those were supposed to be SUPER gross!
Well, it WAS in 2012!
They got violations like:
“Food-contact surfaces encrusted with grease and/or soil deposits, hand wash sink not accessible for employee use at all times, grit cakes found stored in walk-in cooler uncovered and subject to contamination…├óΓé¼┬¥
For a score of 89, or ├óΓé¼┼ôB.├óΓé¼┬¥
At least she changed for the better — we wonder how Bubba’s doing!
