2 Knox County restaurants reinspected after low health inspection scores

KNXOVILLE (WATE) – A relatively new pancake house and restaurant in Farragut had one of the lowest health inspection scores of the year late last month. Within several weeks, the inspector returned for a follow-up.

Don Delfi’s Pancake House, 120 West End Avenue – Grade: 71 New Grade: 95

The Farragut pancake house’s health inspection score was upgraded to a 95 from a 71. Below 70 is considered unsanitary.

The inspector reports that all of the critical violations were corrected. Under state guidelines, health inspectors check for certain risk factors, or critical violations, that could lead to foodborne illness, if not caught and corrected.

Plum Tree, 7052 Kingston Pike – Grade: 77 New Grade: 97

Risk factors at a second restaurant were corrected as well.

Plum Tree’s new grade is a 97. During the restaurant’s first inspection it scored a 77.
