KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A popular restaurant failed its health inspection this week and we have some follow up scores other failing restaurants.

The inspector found a number of critical health violations at the lowest scoring restaurant and the place has been re-inspected, we'll have that grade in a moment.

Lowest Score:

Restaurant Linderhof, 11831 Kingston Pike - Grade: 66


The health department considers a score below 70 as unsanitary.

Hygiene and sanitation were a problem.

The inspector writes she watched two employees go inside the kitchen after being outside and started touching food utensils and containers without washing his hands first.

The inspector found mold in the ice maker and mold at the drink service station.

She says the food slicer, put away clean and ready to use, was excessively dirty.

A soiled rag was sitting on the food preparation table.

The temperature of six pork shanks were way off. They were 81 degrees and were ordered thrown away to reduce the possibility of someone getting sick.

And the inspector watched an employee eat food in the kitchen. You can do that at home, but not at restaurants.

Restaurant Linderhof has been reinspected, and the adjusted grade is a respectable 85.

Reinspected Grades:

San Juan de Los Lagos Grill, 703 Cherry St. - Old Grade: 51, New Grade: 85


A few weeks ago, Los Lagos Grill scored a 51. It's been reinspected, and the new grade is an 85.

Bombay Palace, 10901 Parkside Dr. - Old Grade: 52, New Grade: 75

On Parkside Drive, Bombay Palace has been reinspected. Its grade went from a 52 to a 75.

Top scores:

Not all is lost. There are several restaurants with good health inspection grades this week.

  • Penn Station East Coast Subs, 163 N. Peters Road - Grade: 99
  • Dave's Dog House, mobile cart - Grade: 98
  • Subway, 7654 Oak Ridge Hwy - Grade: 93
  • McDonald's, 2505 Chapman Hwy - Grade: 90
  • Bojangles', 7505 Oak Ridge Hwy - Grade: 90
  • Archer's BBQ, 7650 Oak Ridge Hwy - Grade: 89


Restaurants are checked every six months and the inspections are unannounced.

However, inspectors will follow up on potential problems that are reported to their department.  
So if you notice a violation and the management does nothing to correct it, give your local health department a call.
