There were no top performing restaurants in this week's Food for Thought, only low performers.
We beginwith Dairy Queen at 7813 Slide Road with five critical violations. Manager Logan Dollar invited NewsChannel 11's Food for Thought inside the kitchen to check things out.
"We re-ice this twice a day now, instead of just the one time we were doing that," Dollar said.
"We've got a new heat situation here with heat lamps," Dollar said.
"It's just something that you always have to retrain and constantly stay on top of," Dollar said.
"We threw those away, and we try to do better when stock comes in at catching those kind of things," Dollar said.
"An employee was lazy and didn't re-date the product that had been done that day she came," Dollar said. Dollar says cleanliness, that's what they like about their restaurant, and the crew strives for success everyday. "Try to do the best we can at all times; sometimes it doesn't always happen, but we try to do the best we can," he said.

The manager tells us: "Our main concern is our customers and we would not do anything intentionally to harm them. Everything indicated in the report has been corrected."
Next at bat is the Home Plate Diner at 3515 50th Street with seven critical violations.
The manager tells us that staffing issues prevented her from becoming the certified food manager, but she is enrolled now. She also tells us staff had a mandatory meeting to discuss proper procedures immediately after their inspection. She says everything has been corrected, they'll continue to strive for perfection.
