Food For Thought: 3.7

It's a short-order; we have two stops that are serving up perfection and a drive thru that has some cleaning up to do.

It's been a steak staple in the Hub City for years, and all that practice has paid off.
It was a touchdown for The 50 Yard Line Steakhouse at 2549 S. Loop 289.
Manager Gail Lacey says perfection is a team effort, "We work really hard keeping everything clean, getting employees together to go around and clean and check to make sure everything is clean, wipe down your area, wear gloves and keep your hands washed."
Gail says it's the attention to detail - and of course their homemade cheese rolls and blueberry muffins - that keeps customers coming back.
"We have really good steaks and great service. We serve certified Angus beef. We have our own butcher in-house, and we cut our own steaks; we cook them on a grill, a charcoal grill, and it's great."

We top of the top of the list with dessert.
Dippin Dots inside the South Plains Mall served up a perfect score.

Now to this week's only low performer.

Josie's at 3312 Ave. Q had six critical violations.
* Cold foods were not 41 degrees or below.
* Hot foods were not at least 135 degrees.
* Raw eggs were stored over other food items.
* There were no paper towels in the employee's restroom.
* Kitchen utensils were broken or dirty.
* And the inspector noted that because of the number of repeat violations the manager did not demonstrate food safety knowledge.

Management tells us everything has been corrected.  The report shows most violations were corrected during the inspection.
