Kitchen Cops: Two low performers and two comebacks


Two restaurants are Kitchen Cops low performers for the first time and two previous low performers got their chance at redemption upon reinspection. 

We begin the Kitchen Cops report at the Kyoto Japanese Steakhouse in Decatur. The Morgan County Health Department handed them an 80. The main violation; cold-holding food not held cold enough to prevent bacterial growth.The inspector reports raw chicken was 29 degrees above the required cold-holding temperature. Rice was 20 to 29 degrees off the mark, and Lo Mein noodles were 14 degrees too warm. 

The next low performer, also in Decatur, is just a quarter mile down Beltline Road, New China Restaurant, scoring an 83. The inspector reports finding personal drinks stored on food prep tables. New China also lost points because their food manager safety certificate had expired. 

The Foodland Deli and Bakery in Sheffield scored an 82. The inspector says chicken tenders and chicken livers were not hot enough to prevent bacterial growth. 

Workers at the Dreamland BBQ in Huntsville earned their way off of the Kitchen Cops low performers list in a big way, scored a 94, thirteen points better than their previous inspection. 

The Jo Mo One Stop Texaco Food Mart in Tanner scored an 82 last time. This time, they scored an 89, getting off of the low performers list, too. 

We have four High Performers this week. Ted's BBQ on University Drive in Huntsville scored a near-perfect 99. The same score for Shababy's Rib Shack in Harvest. The Jack's on Cloverdale Road in Florence also scored a 99. And the Rayomart in Muscle Shoals scored a 98.
