An Atlanta Waffle House is operating under a failing health score after an inspection by the Fulton County Department of Health.

During a routine health inspection on Oct. 11, the Waffle House location at 6035 Bakers Ferry Rd. scored a 65 out of 100. The inspector wrote that the "Facility is not clean" and ordered a thorough cleaning of the entire restaurant.

Among their violations for improper storage of utensils and cleaning supplies, the health inspector also observed a dish washer that didn't get hot enough. That same dishwasher was described as "particularly dirty" and dirty food prep surfaces.

The quotes from the report paint a picture of the violation

"Observed flies in facility as well as a baby roach on the door of the walk in cooler."

"The entire front line is dirty and unsanitized. All surfaces including counter tops, carts, gaskets. Inside the cabinet under the ice bin on the end next to the window is covered in mold, dirt and food debris."

"The handsink knobs have a large amount of mold/mildew forming inside."

"Observed slime forming inside the ice maker."

A follow up inspection date is scheduled for Oct. 26
