Food for Thought 2.3

Posted: Updated:

Health inspectors were busy this week! They stopped by more than forty Lubbock restaurants. Our low performer list is short and has one familiar spot on it. For a complete list of this week's top and low performers you can click on FoodforThought.

Lin's Buffet at 5608 Slide road is a repeat low performer, this time they had several critical violations.

  • Shrimp and sushi was not at the safe hot temperature.
  • Steak at the Mongolian grill was not at the safe hot temperature.
  • A bowl was in the hand sink in the bathroom
  • Food was in the hand sink and there were un lidded drinks at the Mongolian grill
  • Buckets with dirty water was being used to store utensils.
  • Dish soap was stored next to honey and spices.

Our next low performer was inspected after someone filed a complaint after they said, they quote: "Experienced illnesses on two separate occasions after eating there."

The Lone Star auto Auction at 2706 east Slaton Road had several critical violations.

  • Raw beef patties were not at the safe cold temperature.
  • Employees were not washing their hands when returning to the kitchen and were then handling foods.
  • Employees were handling buns bare-handed.
  • An employee was touching the food surface of a utensil when grabbing it, and scrub pads and oven mitts were stored with clean utensils.
  • A spray bottle of automotive degreaser was hanging on a shelf with dirty dishes.
  • Several food contact surfaces were dirty: the microwave was splattered with food, and the ice scoop was stored in a soiled container.

Lone Star Auto Auction's manager did say they were inspected during the lunch rush and slipped up on a few things because they were so busy.

The report shows all violations at both restaurants were corrected during the inspection.
