Finally, there’s some good news for Old Lady Gang. According to Radar Online, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s restaurant has finally received an “A” health score from the health inspector. That’s something to celebrate because this news comes after months and months and months of lackluster health scores. Now that Bravo has officially canceled Kandi and the Gang, it seems like the OLG team is using their extra free time to get organized and clean behind the scenes.
Of course, Kandi and Todd own both Old Lady Gang and Blaze Steak and Seafood. On Real Housewives of Atlanta, we’ve followed their journey into restaurant ownership, and it’s been a rocky road. Once they finally opened the doors to their restaurants, maintaining them proved to be challenging. In 2020, OLG was in the headlines after three people were injured in a shooting at the restaurant. Then, the health department forced Blaze to close temporarily after a failed inspection. Meanwhile, OLG has held a C-rating with the health department since 2021.
Previously when the health department visited Old Lady Gang, they uncovered some disturbing issues in the kitchen. The inspector allegedly found everything from raw hamburgers to crab cakes and sliced cheese at unsafe temperatures. So, this soul food had a little bit of extra soul when it came to your table.

Raw meat hanging out in the temperature danger zone was not the only infraction at Old Lady Gang. The inspector also uncovered the management was not properly stocking the employee’s hand-washing sink. There were no soap or paper towels at the hand-washing station, which is just as bad as a fashion show with no fashion.
Although it took a couple of years, it seems Kandi and the gang have finally stocked up on paper towels and figured out how to properly store their food. The Georgia Department of Public Health reportedly paid the restaurant a visit at the beginning of March 2023. For once, they were actually satisfied with what they found. The health inspector awarded them a perfect score, 100 out of 100, so visitors should see an “A” rating in the window the next time they visit OLG. Let’s hope it stays that way.
