With school back in session health inspectors are whipping up some pop-quizzes inside local cafeterias. Let's take a look at the grades.
Five schools are at the top this week including: Alderson Academy, Bozeman Elementary, Roy Roberts Elementary, Hutchinson Middle School and Estacado High School.
J&M BBQ is at the top this week, grilling up perfection at their 5603 34th Street location.
Now on to our next top performer, and if you're like me you get hungry just walking by this place. Well, maybe I've just "Gone Nuts." No really, that's their name! Gone Nuts inside the South Plains Mall was flawless.
And finally, our menu of top performers end on a sweet note. Kaleidoscoops at 2902 50th Street had a perfect score.

Now to our schools with one critical violation.
At Cavazos Middle School inspectors found mildew on the inside of an ice machine and chicken crispers were not at least 135 degrees at Evans Middle School.
And finally, Lubbock Christian School had four critical violations.
According to the reports, all violations at all schools were corrected at the time of the inspections.
O'Hana Mongolian BBQ at 3410 98th Street had six critical violations.
O'Hana's owner says, "We are getting ready to close the restaurant for remolding and will reopen in about four months with a new concept and new managers." According to the report, all but one of the violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
After a customer complaint to the Lubbock Health Department, inspectors checked-out Pinocchio's Pizza at 1905 50th. There they also found six critical violations.
According to the report the walk-in cooler was holding at 50 degrees. They were then told they could not put any foods in the walk-in cooler until cleared by the health department.
Management did not return our phone calls. According to the report, only one violation was corrected during the inspection.
And finally, Texas Burritos at 2167 50th Street had eight critical violation.
After repeated attempts, no one answered our calls for comment. According to the report most of the violations were corrected while the inspector was there.
