Now to the list of low performers.
Chili's Grill and Bar at 607 University has four critical violations.
Management at Chili's says the inspector came in right after a Friday lunch rush. She added that, "Chili's follows very strict rules and food regulations - something that the inspector complimented us on." She also said, "We're very excited to be open and in this area, and we're all dedicated every single one of us to food safety." The report shows all violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
Donut Depot at 3612 34th street also had four critical violations.

Maharaja Indian Cuisine at 5130 80th Street had five critical violations.
We contacted management at Maharaja, they had no comment. The report shows most of the violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
O'Hana Mongolian BBQ at 3410 98th Street had six critical violations.

Garcia's Mexican Restaurant at 5402 Slide Road had six critical violations.
Management at Garcia's says they are dealing with an old building and are in the process of up-grading to a new location. They say until then they are making the best out the older equipment. They also say, the tortillas had just been delivered when the inspection began. Management says all violations have been corrected. The report show most of them had been as well.
Jake's Sports Cafe at 5025 50th Street had nine critical violations. Owner Scott Stephenson says he wants customers to see what a critical violation looks like, because it's not always as bad as it sounds. "I'd like to show you some of the things in the kitchen, because 9 violations sounds like a lot," Stephenson said.
"(An employee) made a sandwich and he thought, 'I need to change my gloves.' So he took off those gloves and put on a new pair - well that's a critical violation because you have to wash your hands between putting on gloves," Stephenson said.
"(The bartender) made a drink and while she was here, since the doors are open she could see that someone came in, so she set it there.
"This is a critical violation," Stephenson said pointing to a small dent in can.
"That's a critical. To me that's what we should call a minor," Stephenson said showing an example of a hand towel sitting on the side of the sink.
"I didn't see it, however what we did do is have somebody come out and spray," Stephenson said.
"Two plates we had a little bitty piece of cheese sitting on the corner," Stephenson said.
"Would you have used that plate?" asked NewsChannel 11.
"No, if we would have picked up it we would have used a different plate," Stephenson added.
He says he does not disagree with the violations and commends the health inspectors for what they do, he says he wishes there were various levels of violations and that not everything was labeled critical.
"When they were done, I said, 'You known man that's pretty bad,' and I said, 'But, would you (the inspector) eat here and she said, 'Yeah I would eat here.'"
Stephenson says all violations have been corrected. The report shows most were corrected at the time of the inspection.
