There were a plethora of violations in this weeks Food for Thought, but we start with the good news.
Burger King and Pizza Hut inside the Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport and Moe's Southwest Grill at 803 N. University Avenue all were perfect with no critical violations.
Now to the list of low performers.
We start at Great Wall at 1625 University where inspectors found four critical violations.
Management at Great Wall says, "Inspectors came in the next day and said everything was great." The inspection shows that most violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
Next we head to United Market Street at 3404 50th Street. The restaurant inside the supermarket had four critical violations.
We contacted United Supermarket's corporate office they tell us, "Everything was corrected at the time of the inspection." They added that, "With regard to the improper cold-hold, repairs were being made to the unit before the inspector even left the store." They say, "We take the mission of food safety and sanitization very seriously."
Cafe J at 2605 19th Street had five critical violations.
Management at Cafe J released this statement: "Cafe J is in the process of an ownership change. New management, new chefs and a new inspector combined for a poor result. None of the items referred to as 'critical violations' impacted the safety or the quality of the food at Cafe J. All violations were corrected immediately and you can rest assured (this) will not reoccur."
The report shows most of the violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
Whataburger at 1702 19th Street had six critical violations.
Management at Whataburger was not allowed to comment and directed us to their corporate office. This is the statement released: "All issues from the health inspection on July 21 were immediately corrected. The restaurant was re-inspected four days ago with a perfect rating. Our customers are the most important focus at Whataburger and we pride ourselves on providing clean, safe and comfortable dining experiences."
Gloria's Two Restaurant at 1601 50th Drive had seven critical violations.
After repeated attempts, there was no answer at Gloria's for a comment.
The report shows one of the violations was corrected at the time of the inspection.
