Food for Thought Report 1.14

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week health inspectors checked out 60 food establishments, and 11 of them were perfect. So get ready as we take your taste buds on a tour of top performers.

Get ready to salsa as we start this tour of perfection with a taste of Mexico. Casa Ole' at 4413 South Loop 289 is our first south of the border stop.

Next we head to a Food for Thought newcomer. Los Tacos at 3501 Ave. A danced through their initial inspection with ease.

And wrapping up this spicy trip is Taqueria Jalisco at 2211 Ave. Q

If big juicy burgers tempt your taste buds and the thought of not having to get out of the car sounds like a treat as well - then buckle up for this ride. Tommy's Drive In at 117 North University grills up a repeat wining score.

Next we cruise on over to another repeat top performer, but there's a bonus with this one. Bonus Burgers at 2312 50th grills up a flawless inspection.

And this trip wouldn't be complete without a stop at America's favorite drive-in. It's a brown bag perfect performer for the Sonic Drive In at 4611 34th.

Now it's time for some Italian. Known for its calzones, this a familiar face on Food for Thought. One Guy from Italy at 4320 50th Street adds spice to this list.

As does another repeat top performer. Simple Simon's Pizza at 3410 I-27 tosses up a perfect score.

Our next stop is a sandwich shop that dares to be different. Quizno's at 7301 University Ave is a first time top performer.

We may be far from the sea, but if you're looking to partake in delicious oceangoing fare Shrimp Galley at 5109 82nd is ready to answer the call.

And finally to top off this tasty trip - dessert in a dash. Peace O' Cake Cupcakes at 3412 34th opens at 10 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday and keeps serving until the last cupcake is sold.
