City health inspectors performed 53 food establishment inspections this week, and with so much on their plate, you can bet there's a lot on ours too.
We haven't seen any schools in a while, but we're heading back to the cafeteria.
We begin at Evans Junior High School at 4211 58th St. Zero critical violations means the Evans gang has a top performing certificate coming their way.
Whiteside Elementary at 7508 Albany is another Top Performer this time--the cafeteria there also earns a perfect score.
Irons Junior High received one critical violation this week--a knife was found with a broken tip. Food contact surfaces, equipment and utensils must be in good repair. The report shows the violation was corrected on site.

When we called China Town, we were told the owner was not there to give a response about the restaurant's inspection report and maybe he would be back later. We phoned again and still no owner--the report shows one critical violations was corrected on site.

Stockman's at 8222 University is next on the list with four critical violations.
A co-owner at Stockman's said the lemons arrived from their supplier in the condition the inspector found them, and that they were still boxed up. He said they have dealt with the supplier on that issue. He also said one of the sanitizing solutions used in the restaurant is meant to be sprayed and left on food contact surfaces, and the bottle had been left near the food prep area. He said this is the first regular inspection for Stockman's and it's an ongoing learning process, and they now know which areas need to be addressed and where employees need retraining. The report shows all violations were corrected on site.
Next is Skillet's at 6622 I-27 where seven critical violations were found.
