Restaurant Report Card: Kountry Kitchen & Seafood

JEFFERSONVILLE, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Warm welcome, hot food at Kountry Kitchen & Seafood in downtown Jeffersonville.

“When you walk in the door you can feel that welcoming spirit,” said customer Danny Roberson.

Kountry Kitchen made a 100 on its health inspection, but there were a couple of restaurants this week that didn’t.

China Max at 3661 Eisenhower Parkway in Macon scored a 61.

The person in charge didn’t seem to understand good health and retail practices, an employee simply rinsed hands instead of washing with soap and water and there was a leak in the walk-in cooler that spilled possibly dirty water on top of containers of broccoli.

The Mandarin Chinese Bistro at 3086 Riverside Drive scored a 66.

There was buildup that looked like rust on the ice panel, the food waiting to be eaten under the heat lamps wasn’t hot enough, and the employee’s hand washing sink was full of rice.

Other scores this week can be found here.

It’s only been open for a few months, but Kountry Kitchen & Seafood already feels familiar.

“This restaurant is an asset to the community, and it’s been well needed. and the people have received it well, and it’s had great success,” said Roberson.

They’re stopping by for some great food.

“alright so right here we have plain fried wings,” said co-owner Scott James.

Wings and some southern cooking to go with.

And James thinks that 100 on the wall isn’t too shabby either.

“Here at the kountry kitchen we do it right everyday,” said James. “We cut no corners. my thing is a clean kitchen is a happy kitchen. That’s my motto. And um, we just try to do it right. We take our customers and our community very serious, if we’re going to serve them food we gotta do it right and it has to be safe.”

Some good southern cooking at a 100 on the health inspection, sounds like Kountry Kitchen is making the grade this week.
