Food For Thought 10.27

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Health inspectors grilled dozens of restaurants this week and two of them just didn't cut it...

We'll start at the Koko Cafe at 5201 Avenue Q South Drive. They have 6 critical violations:

  • Raw fish, beef, steak, and beans were all not at the safe cold temperature of 41 degrees.
  • Employees were rinsing hands at a dump sink without soap.
  • Employees were handling cornbread, lettuce, and tomatoes barehanded.
  • A lidded drink was in a freezer.
  • Raw fish was stored over ready to eat ham slices, which could cause cross contamination.
  • A bag of baked potatoes in the cooler was date marked for October 10th and October 16th.
    Most of these violations have been corrected.

Now to our second low performer, George's at 6914 82nd had 6 critical violations.

  • Raw chicken, pork, and fish were not at the safe hot temperature.
  • An employee put on new gloves without washing their hands first.
  • An unlidded drink was stored by the drive through window.
  • An employee was handling tortillas with bare hands while making burritos.
  • Part of the ice machine had mildew.
  • Their washing machine was not sanitizing.
    A repair man was called about the washing machine and inspectors checked back with George's the next day to report that all the violations have now been corrected.

We have 8 top performers this week:

  • Dickey's BBQ at 5412 Slide road had a perfect score.
  • Denny's at 4718 Slide served up plates of perfection.
  • And the report never lies... Pinocchio's at 5404 4th had zero critical violation.
  • McAlister's Deli at 4210 82nd Street stacked up a flawless inspection.
  • Seoul Korean Cuisine at 4620 50th had a perfect score.
  • You can eat fresh at Subway at 5015 University with no critical violations.
  • Taco Bell at 2408 82nd Street dished out a perfect score
  • And we wrap up our top performers at Yamagata Japanese Steakhouse at 5905 82nd street.
