Kandi Burruss’ ‘Old Lady Gang’ Restaurant Received C Health Score Months Before Her Blaze Restaurant Failed Health Inspection!

Kandi Burruss’ Old Lady Gang restaurant was slapped with a C health rating months before her new spot failed an inspection.

According to official records obtained by Radar Online, back in February, the Georgia Department of Public Health visited Old Lady Gang. The Atlanta establishment was opened by the Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Todd Tucker back in 2016.

A health inspector gave Burruss’s eatery a 77 rating after finding several problems in the kitchen during a routine visit on February 11, 2021. According to the report, the investigator said they observed, “time/temperature control for safety food (shredded cheese, milk, tomatoes, salmon, and catfish) at a temperature above 41°F.”

They noted, “reach in coolers and equipment to be soiled heavily with food debris. Gaskets and handles of equipment have excessive build-up.” The staff was “advised that nonfood-contact surfaces of equipment shall be cleaned at a frequency that prevents accumulation.”

During the inspection, they also noted the cleaning chemicals were being mixed improperly and paper towels were missing in dispensers.

A couple of days later, the inspector came back for another go, and Burruss’s team fixed the majority of the problems. This time, the restaurant received a 94 score and an A rating.

The revelation that Old Lady Gang had problems a couple of months back comes after it was reported via Radar Online on Burruss’s other restaurant Blaze failing a whole inspection. The Atlanta hot spot, which opened in 2020, was forced to shut down for days and work on the issues.

The health inspector accused the employees of mishandling raw food in the kitchen among several other violations.

The report said, “Food handler touched raw oysters and raw salmon and then proceeded to handle ready to eat leafy greens with the same gloves on improperly. Moving from raw food to ready-to-eat foods is a source of cross contamination.”

Burruss closed the restaurant and privately worked on the problems before reopening days later. The health department came out a couple of days later but Blaze only slightly improved.

At the moment, Blaze has a 77 score and a C rating, reports Radar Online.
