Restaurant Report Card for week of February 7

By  | 

(KWTX) We told you about Waco’s Bella Luna Italian Bistro back in November when they made a 77.

Now under new ownership, they failed with a 66 and were shut down.

The owner didn't have a proper permit or running hot water.

Rat droppings were seen near the vegetable sink, on top of a can of olives under the storage shelf and on top of the dishwasher.

Shrimp and chicken were both warm and ground beef were being stored next to ready-to-eat foods.

A waitress was making a salad without gloves and the cook didn't have a food handler license and there was no food manager on site.

No word yet when they will reopen.

Cotton Patch Cafe on South 31st Street in Temple gets a 91.

They had to throw away raw chicken, hamburger meat, tilapia and steak that was in the cooler because it wasn't keeping things cold enough.

The can opener blade was dirty and they need to clean several food contact surfaces.

This week's Clean Plate award goes to Bird Creek Burger Company in Temple.

Kids eat free on Thursdays with purchase of an entree and fans are raving about their keto menu.
