Food for Thought Report 2.5

Posted:

We find our first top performer inside the National Flea Market at 1808 Clovis Road.

"Our most popular products are our brisket burritos and our frito pies." Owner JoAnn Guerrero says while the food is great - there is one thing in particular that keeps the customers coming back for more.

"Hi-Jo's Lemonade! The most popular lemonade that we sell is the Hi-Jo's strawberry lemonade. And it is fabulous."

Hi-Jo's Lemonade Express is open each weekend and prides itself on keeping clean. Over the past two years it's built up a pretty loyal following, and JoAnn says - it's all because of the lemonade. "Secret recipe? Yes indeed! It's a Hi-Jo's secret that we'll keep 'til, I guess until life ends. We want to make sure to keep everyone coming back for more."

Fast, Fresh and Flawless! While they've been close several times - Fazoli's at 1902 W. Loop 289 - finally makes it to the top of the list.

And it's a repeat performance of perfection for our next top performer. Lone Wolf Express 5702 19th Street once again had zero critical violations.

Known more for it's karaoke than it's cooking - The Silver Bullet Club at 5145 Aberdeen is singing praises after they gave a flawless performance.

America's favorite drive in, does it again. Sonic Drive-In at 101 N. University delivers a top rated inspection.

Health inspectors shut down our only low performer because they did not have a valid permit to operate. Las Quince Letras is a mobile unit that operates at the flea market on the Clovis Highway.

They were cited for 9 critical violations.

  • All refrigerated items were thrown out because they were held at 50 degrees or above.
  • A hairnet was touching drink lids.
  • Personal drinks were on food contact surfaces.
  • The cutting board was dirty.
  • There was no hot water.
  • There was no hand towels
  • There was no thermometers
  • There was no certified food manager
  • There was no valid permit.

We spoke with the owner of the mobile unit and she tells us she is working to get her permit and hopes to reopen next weekend.
