LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Every week health inspectors check out the cleanliness of Lubbock eateries; this week they surprised about 50 locations. A half-dozen of those stops are on the Food for Thought menu, a mixed plate of top and low performers.

Steak N' Shake at 5012 Milwaukee had 15 violations.

  • Multiple containers of food were held past their date mark.
  • Sliced tomatoes were above the safe cold temperature of 41 degrees.
  • The reach-in cooler was not working.
  • There was no thermometer in the cooler.
  • Raw hamburger meat was stored above ready-to-eat chicken.
  • The ice scoop and the ice scoop holder were dirty.
  • Multiple employee drinks did not have lids.
  • There were no food handler certificates for employees.
  • Food containers and knives were damaged.
  • Food containers had sticker residue on them.
  • Food containers were stacked while they were still wet.
  • Ceiling tiles were missing, and the rear door sweep was damaged.
  • Several other areas of the kitchen were damaged including the walls, floor tiles and the door of the walk-in freezer.
  • The fans in the walk-in cooler were dirty.

The inspectors notes, because of the number and the nature of violations management did not have proper food safety knowledge. 

  • Now here a look at this week's top performers:
  • Barbie's Daylight Donuts at 11814 Indiana
  • Gonzales Snow Cone at 2801 Clovis 
  • Sonic Drive-In at 4401 4th
  • Now We Taco'N (mobile unit)
  • Bella J's Gelato (mobile unit)
