Restaurant Report Card Fargo

Posted: Updated:


Tuesday is time for the Valley News Live Restaurant Report Card.

Every week we investigate area health inspection reports to see who is keeping up to code...and who isn't.

Our first stop for this week's Restaurant Report Card is downtown Fargo at the new Sweeto Burrito.

The shop just opened in December, but when health inspectors came by in early March, they received one non-critical and one critical violation.

According to the report, Sweeto Burrito needs to pay more attention to their ice scoop, where handles need to be kept out of the ice. Burritos wouldn't be right without the rice, but Sweeto's critical was holding rice below the required 135 degrees.

"After he did come in we did go in back, grab a fresh pan of rice, temped it, made sure everything was up to code," says Sweeto Burrito Kitchen Manager Dammon Burgard.

Next we traveled to the Ground Round off 13th avenue in Fargo, who had three non-critical and one critical violation in their last two inspections.

Inspectors say in the most recent check, the non-critical was due to light bulbs that weren't properly shielded. The critical was a can opener with dirty blades.

The restaurant says both issues have been addressed.

"We just got to practice a little harder with our employees and get them trained in properly, which we are doing right now, to get them to get the problem fixed so that we don't have these problems," says Ground Round Assistant Manager Nick Riemer.

Heading out to West Fargo we find our Clean Plate Award winners JL Beers, who hasn't had any violations in the past three inspections.

Recently we also awarded the JL Beers in downtown Fargo.

The beer and burger joint says cleanliness is a top priority.

"Making sure that everything is clean and everything is spotless here is one of our top-most concerns on top of giving the best service we can," says JL Beers Manager and Beertender Christopher Narum.
