    Really should do a more through job of reporting such things, like instead of just listing the category, should actually list what the violation was since each category is so huge and could have really nothing to do with the kitchen or how your food is prepared. Since most people reading this story have never had or been involved in any kind of food inspection, might be wise to educate them on how one works.

    Historic Park Inn is on the lists. After all of the money spent and the small amount of time they have been open you would certainly expect more. What will it be like after a year??

    The windows at Patrick’s have never been cleaned. They should be shut down. What a pig pen.

    Many older buildings need pest control, it’s a matter of dealing with the issue before it becomes a problem. Lots of variables with each violation. Needless to say I hope these restaurants/facilities address the issues at hand.

    Does pest control mean they need to get rid of cockroaches or mice?

      If you consider those nit-picking, it makes me wonder if you have ever been food-service qualified? Remind me not to eat in your kitchen.

      “Remind me not to eat in your kitchen.”

      I wonder how your kitchen/dinning room would fare under the same inspection?

      What serves for a kitchenette is adequate, and would pass muster. No pre-cooked or left-overs, thermometer was recently calibrated – fridge running at 35 degrees. Floor and table cleaned with bleach. No mold.

    Makes you think twice about the food you eat and where, and southside McDonald’s shake machine has been broke since the dawn of time
