The inspector also reports there were hot food temperature issues at Greenbrier, with hamburger meat 24 degrees under the 135-degree temperature

The restaurant also reportedly had damaged fryer baskets in use.

Damaged fryer baskets are also reported at Casa Blanca Mexican Restaurant on Highway 72 East in Athens, as they scored an 81. The inspector also reports that a close look at some drink nozzles revealed they needed to be cleaned.

When the inspector came back three days later, the three coolers, and the food temperature issues were fixed
