By  | 

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Leeann Chin and Joe's Cajun Cafe are similar restaurants with very different health inspection reports.

Cajun Cafe is this week's Clean Plate Award winner.

"If you keep your work station clean, clean up after you do a certain item then generally, it should be pretty easy to maintain a clean work area," long-time employee Gabriel Rodas said.

Leeann Chin was slapped with two critical violations on their latest health inspection report.

Those violations were not properly dating food and using hand washing sinks for something else besides hand washing. A manager wasn't able to comment on the violations.

Zeapoe Matalda, a customer who eats a both restaurants, had this to say about the situation.

"I don't really listen to the critics, I just kind of eat wherever 'til I get sick and then I say I'm not going there anymore," Matalda said. "But if other people tell me it's bad, I won't go there."

Health inspection reports for both restaurants are below.
