The Gaslight at 5212 57th Street tops this week's list of Top Performers.
Open less than two weeks, La Kumbia at 5001 Ave. Q is our next top performer. Owners of the new sports bar and grill suggest sinking your teeth into the Kumbia Mix.
The restaurant and Starbucks inside Target at 6064 Brownfield Highway were right on target with a perfect score.
And the deli and meat market inside United Supermarket at 2703 82nd Street is our final top performer.

|Food for Thought 10.4|
Inspectors found a dirty can opener at Overton Elementary.
And at Tubbs Elementary, several cold food items were not below the safe temperature of 41 degrees.
According to the reports, both schools corrected their violation at the time of the inspection.
A customer complained to the health department after becoming sick - so that sent inspectors to Grandy's at 4631 50th Street. They found seven critical violations.
Management says they have been re-inspected and everything was at 100 percent. According to the report, most of the violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.
Next we head to Gardski's at 2009 Broadway where inspectors found 10 critical violations.
The report states all but two of the violations were corrected while the inspector was there. Management says, "For the last 30 years Gardski's strives every day to be perfect, and the health department expects us to be perfect every day. And at the end of the day, with the help of the health department, we both have achieved our goals."
Our final low performer is no stranger to the bottom of the Food for Thought list. Carneceria Sonora at 2837 Clovis Road has now been a low performer six times since the beginning of the year and was forced to close at one point.
This week they were cited for 12 critical violations.
Management says all violations have been corrected. The report shows most of the violations were corrected during the inspection.
