Food for Thought Report 3.12

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX - (KCBD) We begin this week's Food for Thought at Lubbock's own Cheezie's Pizza. From Tropical Delight to Chicken Ranch, this pizza place at 1803 7th Street is a palace of perfection.

The world's most wanted wiener also finds a spot at the top. Wienerschnitzel at 6319 82nd street is a first time top performer.

Next we take a trip to the Chisum Travel Center at 2611 E. Slaton Hwy. They passed their surprise inspection with no critical violations.

For a taste of India we head to Gandhi Bazar at 4501 34th. This first time top performer promises a perfectly unique shopping experience.

The next top spot offers some friendly help for your kitchen. Five of the departments inside Amigos United Supermarket at 112 N. University were flawless.

We also find five top performers at our final stop inside South Plains Mall:

  • Auntie Anne's Pretzel
  • Auntie Anne's Pretzel Kiosk
  • Pretzel Maker
  • Dippin Dots
  • Original Great American Cookie Co.

Food for Thought 3.12
Here is a complete list of the restaurants and their violations for the week ending on 3/12/09.

The food court at the mall is also where we find this week's only low performer.

Health inspectors cited Mandarin Express for seven critical violations.

  • Raw chicken, beef and other potentially hazardous foods inside the walk-in cooler were thrown out. The items, which should be no more than 41 degrees were 50 degrees and above. The report shows that a repairman arrived during the inspection to fix the cooler. It also notes that one of the discarded containers of chicken was spoiled.
  • Boxes of meat were soaked in blood. They were also thrown out.
  • Roaches were crawling around the grease trap and near the mop sink.
  • There was no back flow preventer at the mop sink, which that helps protects the water supply from contamination. A hand sink was stopped up.
  • A sanitizer bucket was in another hand sink.
  • Several items in the kitchen were dirty. According to the report, there was a "heavy growth of mold" on all walls, the floor and the ceiling of the walk-in cooler.
  • Finally, the health inspector noted that the manager did not demonstrate food safety knowledge during the inspection.

Management tells us, all violations have been corrected. The report shows most were corrected during the time of the inspection.
