Midtown's Gladys Knight Chicken & Waffles improves health score

ATLANTA — Gladys Knight Signature Chicken & Waffles in Midtown no longer has a failing health score, according to officials.

Just a few weeks after the popular restaurant and tourist attraction failed a February health inspection, health inspectors say the restaurant has earned an "A." It now has a passing grade of a 90 out of 100 – a vast improvement from last month's 56 out of 100.

Back in February, the popular southern cuisine restaurant located at 529 Peachtree St. was cited with a "U" grade. According to the Fulton County Public Health Inspection website, the location had more than a dozen health infractions, ranging from the cleanliness of food-contact and non food-contact surfaces to the cleanliness of employee's hands. Further, three of the listed violations were known risk factors for foodborne illnesses.

Since the Feb. 18 inspection, health inspectors have returned to the establishment and once again given it a passing grade. 

Before last month's failed inspection, the location received an "A" grade for a score of 94 on April 8, 2015. Before that, on March 26, 2015, the restaurant received a "C" grade for a score of 79.
