Burg Steakhouse, 738 Parkway, Gatlinburg — Grade 73, Follow-up Grade: 93

The inspector noted in their report they watched a cook place a raw steak on a grill, then without washing his hands first, he handled ready-to-eat hamburger buns. When he checked, the inspector also found no sanitizer running through the dishwasher, but it is required.

In the walk-in freezer, several boxes of food which belonged up on shelves to prevent them from possible contamination were found stored on the floor. Several flying insects were present in the kitchen.

When checked, the ice machine was ‘soiled with a dark substance.’

Finally, wiping clothes that are used to clean tables were stored in a bucket with no sanitizer in it. Sanitizer is required to properly clean the tables.

The inspector has returned to Burg Steakhouse for a re-inspection. All of the original critical violations were corrected. The new grade as you see is a 93.
