Food for Thought Report 3.24

A different way to eat ice cream is our first top performer! Dippin' Dots inside the South Plains Mall serves little frozen drops of ice cream for a cool and unique way to treat you sweet tooth. Dippin' Dots had zero critical violations during their last health inspection.

Food for Thought 3.24
Here is a complete list of the restaurants and their violations for the week ending on 3/24/05.

But if you're looking to satisfy your need for caffeine, Aroma's Coffeehouse is the place this week. Aroma's is located at 5109 82nd Street and they are also a top performer.

Tom and Bingo's BBQ Pit is our third top performer. Owner Dwayne Clanton's father opened the BBQ pit at 3006 34th Street back in 1952 and Dwayne has been serving up food he's says "speaks for itself" since he was just a kid. He says, "It's pretty much a tradition. I wanted to keep it going and leave it exactly as it was. Not much has changed. We keep it simple and clean and very good."

There are no tables at Tom and Bingo's, just the same benches that have been around since the tiny treasure opened more than fifty years ago. It's a small place big on taste. Dwayne says, "Shoot, we just work quicker when we need more room."

It's lonely on the low performer list this week. The Manila Cafe at 4917 34th Street is our only low performer. The Filipino cuisine restaurant had four critical violations.

  • Chicken, beef and pork were found above the required cool temperature of 41 degrees.
  • Shrimp sauce and beef on a stick were cited for the opposite. They were below the required hot temperature of 140 degrees.
  • Beef, chicken, pork and eggs were being prepared on the same table at the same time creating a cross contamination hazard.
  • A Heimlich chart was not posted.

The first three critical violations were corrected on site. The restaurant had ten days from the time of inspection to post the Heimlich chart. A manager tells NewsChannel 11 the health inspector taught them the proper procedures to avoid committing the same violations in the future.
