It's not all bad news this week with three top and three low performers. We'll get to the violations in just a minute, we start with dessert.
It's a sweet treat for this sweet shop, Aunt Norie's Bakery at 5217 82nd Street is the icing on the cake. They were perfect in their last health inspection.
You can find our next top performer, Eddie's Barbeque at 1324 East 50th Street. And besides cooking up great barbeque, they're sizzling with perfection.
And the last stop at the top is Taco Villa at 7110 Quaker Avenue. They wrap up the top performers with no critical violations.

Next we head to our low performers.
Chinese Kitchen at 5308 Slide Road had four critical violations.
We contacted management at Chinese Kitchen. They say the walk-in cooler froze and was not keeping accurate temperatures. They also say an employee was using egg drop soup to prepare other menu items, and was not eating in the food prep area. They say all violations have been corrected since the inspection.
Their last health inspection landed them at the top, but this time Daylight Donuts at 410 Frankford Avenue had five critical violations.
We contacted Daylight Donuts for a comment, according to the answering machine they were already closed. The report show most of the violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
And finally Long John Silvers at 3415 S. Loop 289 also had five critical violations.
We contacted Long John Silvers, management did not return our phone call. The report shows all violations were corrected on site.
