* Raw chicken, raw beef and other food items were above the safe cold hold of 41 degrees.
* Salmon and fried shrimp were not at least 135 degrees.
* The inspector notes that meat in the walk-in-cooler, specifically intestines, was rancid.
* Numerous food items did not have a proper date-marking. 
* An employee handled ready to eat green beans with their bare hands.
* An uncovered drink was not in a designated spot.
* Raw chicken was stored above read to eat foods.
* An unlabeled chemical spray was in the food prep area.
* The dish washer was not sanitizing.
* Multiple kitchen utensils were dirty or broken.
* The inspector added, due to the number and nature of the violations management did not show proper food safety knowledge.
Management was unavailable for comment, but we were told that all violations have been corrected.
The report shows most of the violations were corrected while the inspectors was there.
