Pedro's Tamales at 8207 Highway 87 is a Food for Thought Top Performer this week with zero critical violations, and they take no chances. Food safety and cleanliness is something serious business here. Case in point, packaging continued for everything made early in the day, that includes all food served in the drive thru line, but when Thursday's nasty weather kicked up, Pedro's production shut down.
"We're I guess concerned for the integrity of the product, we don't want any dust, any bad stuff in the air to get into it just so we know the stuff we ship out to our customers and our vendors is absolutely perfect," said General Manager Daniel Parraz.
Parraz says in addition to the regular health inspections performer by Lubbock inspectors, Pedro's is held to another standard that helps keep things running smoothly, as they churn out thousands of tamales a day. "We follow proper procedures all the time, we're a USDA inspected plant so there's an inspector here all day long."
Another Top Performer this week is Lunch House at 1513 5th Street. This North Lubbock spot hits the spot with zero critical violations.
Rounding out those Top Performers, Rise N Shine Donuts at 6302 Frankford. They get a donut-hole-in-one with a perfect score.
The only Low Performer this time is Logan's Roadhouse at 6213 Slide Road. That's where four critical violations were found. Violations including:
The Manager at Logan's told NewsChannel 11 all violations were corrected on site. The inspection report also shows that all violations were corrected on site.
