Restaurant Report Card

Posted: Updated:

It's Tuesday, so it's time for our weekly restaurant report card. We've gone through the latest health inspection reports for your favorite restaurants.

Unannounced inspections could catch restaurants at a good or bad time, and that's just how they plan it, to see what workers are like on a day-to-day basis.

Our first stop is known for it's beer, burgers and wings. Quaker Steak & Lube just off 45th Street South had two critical and two non-critical violation just last week.

The inspectors notes also said the containers holding clean utensils required cleaning.

We talked with the manager on the phone about the written up dirty meat slicer and large can opener, as well as the messy floors of the cooler and walk in freezer.

The manager said trucks of product had just come through, and loads of food had just been put away, that's why the floors were dirty. He also said they take every violations very seriously.

Going downtown to Mezzaluna they had one non-critical and one critical violation from a bag of wild rice not dated.

Inspector notes said the non-critical was from the wiping cloths being stored on the worktables needed to go in sanitizer buckets between use.

Valley News Live talked with the head chef who says it's a minor write up, but they take it serious, and cleaned up their mistakes right away.

This Tuesday's clean plate goes to a familiar face. The restaurant chain up in Grand Forks recently received our award, but this Fargo location of Five Guys hasn't had any violations in the past four years!

"We just look at it that we do our job daily, there shouldn't be any issue." says Area Manager for Five Guys Mike Srnsky, "I know things can happen but if there are issues you take care of it!"

A deserving sticker for another clean restaurant.
