ATLANTA - In this week's Food Fighters report we head to an old neighborhood favorite in Atlanta's Inman Park. Wisteria recently had a health inspection that took its owner by surprise since they got an unexpected low score.

Chef Jason Hill told 11Alive the restaurant was receiving deliveries at the time and he was a not present for the inspection. He expressed some concerns about inconsistency between health inspectors but didn't want to to stir the waters and cause problems.

"Everything has been fixed and we are waiting for our re-inspection," Hill said.

Wisteria was reinspected Friday afternoon, May 4th, and got nearly a perfect score, 99 or an A.

Two other well known neighborhood restaurants also recently got low scores from that same inspector.

Rathbun's in Inman Park with a 61 Unsatisfactory and Pura Vida on North Highland with a 70 or C.

"That's the first time in 35 years I have ever failed a health inspection," Rathbun's owner, Kevin Rathbun, told Food Fighters.

Rathbun expects an A on Monday, May 8th, when he's expecting a followup inspection.

Pura Vida's owner could not be reached because of a family emergency.
