This Thursday night, we've got a half dozen area food establishments to tell you about. Inspectors checked inside the kitchens of 17 local places and out in the county they ventured into 12 others. In all they drummed up three top performers and two low performers.
Our top performing list begins with Jack and Jill donuts at 7803 University is also a Top Performer with a perfect score.
If extra cheese is what you're hungry for, you might want to pay a visit to Papa Johns at 4142 19th Street. They toss up a perfect score as well with zero critical violations.
Out in the county, an area grocery store is 4 times the top performer. The grocery, meat, food center and frozen foods departments at Myers at Highway 6282 and Elm in Wolfforth all received zero critical violations.
Now on to this weeks low performers. Whataburger at 8226 University is where inspectors found four critical violations.
Other violations include a soiled reach in freezer, a soiled floor inside a walk in freezer and a soiled floor inside a walk in unit. The report also states there was evidence of smoking in a back room, there were no ash trays, just ashes on some boxes below the counter.
The manager at Whataburger told us all violations were corrected on site and there was a training session the same day of inspection to make sure all employees were up to speed on policies and procedures. He said they run a good operation, they just made some simple mistakes and they are the best run and cleanest Whataburger in town. The inspection report shows all violations were corrected on site.
Our next low performer is Skillets at 6622 I-27. Inspectors found seven critical violations. Those included:
Other violations included improper lighting in a walk in cooler, a heavily soiled floor in a walk in freezer and improper storage of lettuce.
The manager at Skillet's told us all violations were corrected on site. The inspection report states that as well.
