(KWTX) - The information used to produce the weekly KWTX “Restaurant Report Card” segments is gathered directly from the public records of regular inspections conducted by county health department officials in Central Texas. KWTX does not determine what locations are inspected and does not assign the overall scores which are reflected in percentages. Any questions regarding the status of an inspection, reinspection, or the score reported should be directed to the individual county health departments in which those businesses are located.

Cheddar’s Casual Cafe at 4208 Franklin Avenue in Waco got a 90 on a recent inspection.

According to the food safety worker, there was old food debris on clean items throughout the kitchen.

The employees had to wash things by hand because the machine was not working properly.

There was an employee working without a beard restraint, and soiled wiping clothes laying about.
