LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock health inspectors checked out the cleanliness of about 60 eateries this week; three of those landed on the Food for Thought list.

Our only low performer this week is Ruby Tequila's at 8601 University.

They had 14 violations.

  • Dressing was held past its date mark.
  • The inside of the ice machine was dirty.
  • Shredded cheese and chips in the cooler were not covered.
  • The outside of the chip container was dirty.
  • Multiple plates, utensils and containers were chipped, melted or broken.
  • Multiple containers had sticker residue still on them.
  • Gaskets were damaged and heavily soiled on the walk-in cooler and freezer.
  • Air vents throughout the kitchen were dirty.
  • Walls and ceilings in the kitchen were dirty.
  • Multiple ceiling tiles were damaged or missing.
  • An employee washed their hands and then turned off the water with their clean hands. Employees should use a paper towel to prevent cross contamination.
  • Hand sinks and a prep sink were not sealed to the wall.
  • Employees' drinks did not have lids or straws.
  • The trashcan in the employee's restroom did not have a lid. There was also no self-closing door in the employee's restroom.

The report shows most of the violations were corrected during the inspection.

Now to the good news. Here's a look at this week's top performers:

  • Owen's Lunch and Go (mobile unit)
  • Taqueria Autlan at 2722 50th
