Food for Thought: Three top performer and two low performers.

     There are five stops on the menu in this week's Food for Thought: Three top performer and two low performers.

     We start with the good news.

 

    The name may sound familiar - but the location is still pretty new.

     Burger House at 2405 19th cooks up a perfect score.

 

     This colonel knows the recipe for perfection.

     Kentucky Fried Chicken at 7902 University is a repeat top performer.

         

     And finally - our last stop sinks a hole in one.

     The Lubbock Country Club was flawless in their latest inspection.

 

     Now to this week's low performers.

    

Golden Corral 5117 SW Loop 289 had six critical violations.

* Cold food was not at the safe temperature of 41 degrees or below.

* Chicken and lasagna were not at least 135 degrees.

* An uncovered drink was on shelf in the meat cutting room.

* Cans were sharply dented.  This can cause bacteria growth inside the can.

* Chemicals were stored above bananas.

* Dirty or broken knives were stored with usable utensils.

Management tells us everything was corrected during the inspection.

The report shows that as well.

Management says their last inspection was a 97 - and they'll be even better on their next one.

 

Kwik Stop #3 at 4710 58th was cited for eight critical violations.

* BBQ and Corndogs were above the safe cold temperature of 41 degrees. They were being kept inside a cooler with an ambient temperature of 60 degrees.

* An uncovered drink was next to food.

* A swollen container of cheese with an expired use-by-date was found. It was thrown out.

* BBQ beef and BBQ sandwiches had no expiration date.

* The inside of the ice machine was dirty. Inspectors noted the machine was to be emptied, cleaned and sanitized within 24 hours.

* There were no paper towels in the restroom.

* There were multiple dirty food contact surfaces.

* And finally - The inspector noted... Because of the scope of the violations and the multiple number of repeat violations - the manager did not demonstrate a knowledge of food safety.

Our calls for comment were unanswered.

The report shows most of the violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
