Insects and food storage problems continue to plague some restaurants

Posted: Updated:

As many of us were shopping and preparing for Thanksgiving, restaurant inspectors were out making sure that our local eateries were keeping things clean and tidy.

This week, Las Margaritas at 1101 Hixson Pike scored a 76, for reasons including manager lacking control over several food safety risk factors, raw foods stored incorrectly and above ready-to-eat foods, cooked food left uncovered in walk-in cooler, cup used as sugar scoop, cell phones sitting on food prep tables, no date marking on cooked foods being stored. Corrected to 95.

At the China King at 2100 Hamilton Place Blvd., inspectors gave a 79 for dead insects observed, shelving in poor repair, facilities in poor repair, ice scoop stored in an ice machine, no date marking observed.

Blue Ribbon Cafe at 9705 Dayton Pike earned an 83 for frozen deli meats thawing in standing warm water, dented can of fruit on shelf, paper bag of flour on floor, shelves dirty in walk-in cooler, vents dirty. Corrected to 93.
