PINE BELT (WDAM) -

Two Pine Belt restaurants landed a less than desirable rating from the health department this week. 

The first restaurant was Grand China Buffet in Hattiesburg on Weathersby Road. A complaint left the restaurant with a "C" rating back on August 29. That complaint came with pictures sent to the heath department showing roaches near dining areas. 

The inspectors note that no roaches were found in the dining areas during the inspection that day, but roaches were found in the kitchen. 

A follow up nine days later on September 7 showed that the problem wasn't fixed. The restaurant had a third inspection on September 8 where they corrected the problem, bumping them up to a B rating. 

In Ellisville, Huddle House on Highway 11 served up a "C" rating as well, but for much different reasons.

The scheduled inspection from September 12 noted hand washing facilities were either inadequate or inaccessible.

The inspection also noted problems with good retail practices because of hot and cold water pressure. So far, Huddle House has not had a follow up inspection.
