Inspectors were busy checking into 25 local and county kitchens this week. What they found includes one perfect scoring restaurant and two low performers with a combined 12 critical violations. Let's put an end to the hunger and take a bite out of this edition of NewsChannel 11's Food for Thought.

We start off with the new location of a long time Lubbock restaurant where watching the chef prepare your food right in front of you is all part of the dining experience. With zero critical violations, Tokyo Japanese Restaurant at 4637 50th St. gets a perfect score this week, making them a Food for Thought Top Performer.
The first of this week's Low Performers is Fox and Hound at 4210 82nd St. That's where five critical violations were found. Violations including:
Other violations included a heavily soiled floor in a beer cooler, a soiled ice machine and no separation of personal and business items.
The General Manager at Fox and Hound told NewsChannel 11 all violations have been corrected and that they take sanitation and safety very seriously. She said there have been no problems since the inspection and everything is going well at the restaurant.
Our other Low Performer is Pirate's Restaurant at 1207 FM 1585 with seven critical violations.
The owner of Pirate's told NewsChannel 11 a new faucet has been installed on the sink and it is now working properly. She said all violations have been corrected.
