Restaurant Report Card for week of May 16

By  | 

(KWTX) Los Cucos Mexican Restaurant in Waco made an 85 on their most recent inspection.

Water was dripping onto bananas and other cut fruits and vegetables from the air conditioning drip pan because of a leak in the pipe.

The inspector found mold in the meat prep cooler and a handwashing sink was blocked by a cart and boxes.

They didn't have a certified food manager on duty or employee health cards posted.

They were re-inspected three days later and were able to correct the problems.

Little Caesars on West Central Texas Expressway in Killeen is having their permit withheld until they fix one violation.

They need to clean all of their wire racks in the cooler because they are extremely moldy according to the inspector.

We’ll keep you posted on their progress.

This week's Clean Plate Award winner is the Olive Branch on South 2nd Street in Waco.

They offer everything from gluten-free to keto friendly meals as well as mouth-watering favorites like Bananas Foster Stuffed French Toast.

(A "No Score" (N/S) can be given at restaurant openings, field or complaint investigations, and follow-up inspections. P/S or permit suspended happens after a restaurant scores lower than a 70 or if the Health Department deems the restaurant a health risk. A massive infestation of insects or no hot water will automatically close a restaurant down. Keep in mind, every restaurant in the county must post their most recent score near the entrance of the eatery. Look for a yellow sheet of paper in a frame next time you go into a restaurant. There, you'll see how the place you're about to eat at did on their score)
