Restaurant Report Card

Posted: Updated:

It is time for our Restaurant Report Card. We went through the latest health inspection reports for area restaurants to find the ones that had the most violations.

This week we found three restaurants to profile that did not have major violations, but still had a few things to fix.

We begin our report at Skydine located inside Hector International Airport. While there was not an endless list of violations, there were a few.

Wiping cloths for tables and kitchenware were not being kept in buckets with enough sanitizer. Two microwaves needed cleaning because of food buildup, and condiment holders had debris buildup as well.

The general manager here said the health inspector came at a very busy time, as a full flight from Las Vegas came in. As soon as the rushed died everything was cleaned.

The second restaurant we visited was O'Kelly's right on Main Avenue near I-29. This place also only had a couple violations.

One was to replace missing light shields in the kitchen. The other was that spinach dip was found to be about 11 days old. A food product like this may only be around for seven days before it needs to be thrown out.

A manager here says the light shields were fixed before the inspector left, and the dip was not being served. It was lost behind other products and thrown out right away.

Our final restaurant was the Pizza Ranch on 45th Street. The violations dealt with minor cleanliness issues.

A dirty wiping cloth was found in the dry storage area. There was some debris accumulating around the water heater and mop sink, and food crumbs were found on the bottom of the pizza proofer. The can opener was also found dirty.

The general manager here says everything was cleaned up within 15 minutes of the inspector leaving. He says they pay very close attention to cleanliness as much as possible.

Normally we also hand out a Clean Plate award to a restaurant that had no violations on their most recent inspection, but this week there were not any restaurants deserving of the award.

There were some restaurants with just a couple minor violations, but none had no violations.
