History: Since the early 2000s, the chain location has largely received inspection ratings of good and excellent, though it did earn a needs-improvement in 2002. This was its first failed inspection.
What the inspector saw: The inspector saw five priority violations, the minimum for a failing probationary rating. Those included the person-in-charge being unable to answer basic food safety questions, inadequate sanitizing of trays, a cooler not reducing temperatures quickly enough or keeping foods below mandated temperatures. The restaurant was temporarily closed due to “imminent health hazards” stemming from the cold-holding issues.
Follow-up: The restaurant passed a follow-up inspection on July 6.
Response: A message requesting comment was not returned by deadline.
