Restaurant Report Card for Week of June 6

By  | 

CENTRAL TEXAS, Texas (KWTX) Firehouse Subs on Franklin Ave in Waco scores a 94 on their recent inspection. The ice machine wasn't clean, the gray panel had dirt specs and their General Manager was seen handling their cell phone and money and then trying to prepare food without washing their hands. No, follow up is required.

Last week we told you about Asian Buffet scoring a 92 in Killeen. They lost points for rodent droppings but called out a pest control company. This week we're told they are still dealing with the unwanted guests but they have confined them to the kitchen and dining area. The manager said they will continue the pest control measures until they are gone.

Father & Son's Soul Food in Killeen also makes an A this week. They had three boxes of shrimp and four boxes of crab on the floor, which is a no-no. They also lost points for not having paper towels at the hand sink, oil residue on the vent hood, and a leaky sink.

This week's Clean Plate award goes to Mama Fu's in Killeen. Be sure to take advantage of their happy hour from 3-6 pm, when all full-size appetizers are $2.00 off.

(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)
