Kitchen Cops: Two fast food restaurants with poor scores

(WAFF) -

Both of this week's Kitchen Cops Low Performers are fast food restaurants in Decatur.

The McDonald's on Point Mallard Parkway scored an 81. They lost points because of mold in an ice maker, and because degreaser was stored over an active food prep area.

The Arby's on Spring Avenue also scored an 81. The inspector reports finding a worker's open drink and food stored over food for customers in a walk-in cooler.

Five Kitchen Cops Low Performers got the chance to get a new start by earning their way off of that list. The reason a score of 84 is the starting point for low performers list is because that is the score that will put a restaurant on the health department's reinspection schedule.

The last time the Morgan County Health Department came to China Buffet in Decatur, they scored an 82. When the inspector came back, the restaurant only improved by three points. But an 85 is just enough to get off of that reinspection schedule, and off of our low performers list.

The staff at the Chili's on Carl T. Jones Drive in Huntsville earned a 91 for their reinspection. That is ten points better than their previous inspection

The Rising Crust Pizza & Hops in Florence rose by four points, earning their way off of the Lauderdale County Health Department's reinspection schedule with a reinspection score of 88.

The Old Rocking Chair Restaurant in Tuscumbia landed right on the score required to get off of the low performers list with an 85, a two-point improvement over their last inspection.

The Y Mart Deli in Boaz scored a 67 last time. They also scored an 85 during for their reinspection.

All six of this week's Kitchen Cops High Performers received a health inspection score of 98. They are Smokin in the Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Too Fat Sisters Kitchen in Russellville, the Starbucks at 1015 Memorial Parkway NW in Huntsville, Sam's Club Cafe on Holmes Avenue in Huntsville, the Subway on Bailey Cove Road in Huntsville, and the Subway along Highway 31 in Hartselle.
