Restaurant Report Card: July 20, 2017 Gyro & Kabob Express

By  | 

TOLEDO (WTVG) -- We start with two restaurants that had 11 and 13 Violations.

Both had follow up inspections. So, they were able to erase those numbers and replace them with new ones.

First, Moe's Place in Rossford.

During a Standard Health Inspection, The Wood County Health District noted 11 Violations, 4 Critical:

X Build up on the ice machine.
X Build up inside pop nozzles.
X Build up inside the cappuccino machine.

After that, Moe's made corrections and a Follow-Up inspection brought the overall number down to 2!

There were similar results at Bar Louie in Levis Commons, which had 13 Violations, 7 Critical:

X Raw chicken stored next to cooked sausage and peppers.
X Can opener with significant build up.
X Floor drain backing up thick liquid waste onto the floor.

Eleven days later, a Follow-Up Inspection brought the total number of violations down to 4.

Next, we have two more restaurants with double-digit violations: 12 and 13. Since these were in Lucas County, their Follow-up inspections are not published online.

China Palace in the Southland Shopping Plaza off Glendale Ave. had 13 Violations, 7 Critical:

X Employee washing hands with cold water.
X Vegetables being stored in cardboard box used to store chicken.
X Container of cut cabbage being drained in the dirty mop sink.

13abc spoke with a manager at China Palace over the phone. He said, "Everything's o.k. now."

Finally, Gyro & Kabob Express on Airport Highway at Holloway. There were 12 Violations, 4 Critical:

X Build up on the hood and cook line.
X Chicken in the prep sink
X Items on the floor in the walk-in cooler.

In response, the owner of Gyro & Kabob Express tells 13abc:

"This is called fake news ... Everything was done the way (the sanitarian) wanted ... I did what she asked me for. I don't think it was a big deal.

"Don't believe everything that you hear or that you read."
