Could a lemon wedge put on the rim of the glass carry e coli?

Yes. It's not so much that the lemon itself may contain it, but that the outside of lemons may not be thoroughly cleaned, and servers almost always use their bare hands to reach into the container of lemon wedges and then puts it on your glass, again with their bare hands, which can be where the contamination really comes from.

in New Jersey, %77 of the lemons tested in 21 local restaurants tested positve for bacteria. These lemons were contaminated with everything from E-coli to staph infection.

My husband's family is born and raised in the Royston area and my FIL and I had a discussion about this just the other day. He knows the owners and, as someone else stated, there goes their business. They will not recover from this as there are a handful of other BBQ restaurants in the area that are just as easy to drive to. The word is that yes it came from a beverage and it is very sad for that small little town to lose a family owned business that had been around for so long. It just goes to show that you can never be too careful.

I Live in Royston. I was told a few weeks back that they were having a "Re-Grand Opening" and inviting media to come out. I also heard it was the cole slaw. I haven't checked in to see how they are doing...

I did hear that they were going to try, but if any of those families decide to sue them they will not be able to bear the financial weight of litigation and the business.

With having Bar-H, Zebs, Vanna (and others)...there is enough competition locally for them that they may have a very hard time picking up the pieces from this.

In my other thread I talk about having insurance. Won't that protect them?

At worst, can't they just start a new LLC and keep cooking?

I presume they had insurance, otherwise the law firms wouldn't be bothering with them....

There was a pretty substantial E. coli outbreak a few years ago due to improperly treated water being used to rinse or irrigate spinach (don't recall which) grown in the Salinas, CA area. Nasty stuff.

I guess it would depend on their liability coverage in their plan, but you would hope so.

They have re-opened and are selling again. Brad may be able to better verify this, but my understanding is that it's not in the same location and I do believe it's the next town over. His business is still not even close to what it was prior though.

These drink stations that restaurants put out so that you can serve yourself....they are huge breeding grounds for nasty bacteria.


Folks, wake up. People are nasty. Nasty as hell. I see it all the time. People leaving public restrooms without even thinking about washing their hands. Next thing you know, they are digging through the lids, straws, lemons, ketchup, mayo packets and forks/spoons/knives at the drink stations.

THAT can put a restaurant out of business? Not if the restaurant doesn't have that...



Another thing....these stupid plastic baskets with a piece of wax paper in them. Nothing but asking for trouble.

Default BBQ Shack

I've eaten there and wrote about the BBQ shack in a review I did. The owner couldn't have been nicer and was so proud to show me his operation.
The food was some of the best BBQ and stew I've had in the North Georgia area.
I would go back in a heartbeat to eat their BBQ. I hope they survive and can move on from this unfortunate incident.

If the lines from the bar aren't clean the whole soda area can grow bacteria. You also have to clean the ice machine regularly.
