2 restaurants given go-ahead to open by health department

Two local restaurants have been given “okay to open” status by the Lake Cumberland District Health Department following inspections late last month.

La Fonda Yummilicious, which moved locations from midtown to 517 South Highway 127, received a 98 percent with sanitizer for dish wash station and chemical test strips both needed. The restroom doors at the restaurant are also not self-closing.

Bayou Cats Seafood Shack, located at 128 Airport Rd., was given a 100 percent during its inspection.

An establishment may pass inspection by having a score between 85 and 100 but critical violations must be corrected within 10 days. Otherwise, violations are expected to be corrected by the next inspection.
