Restaurant Report: Food on the floor in the walk-in fridges

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Food on the floor and improper food temperatures are some of the violations restaurants had on their health inspections in this week's Restaurant Report.

We rock-and-rolled straight to Wok N Roll at 7514 West Broad Street in Henrico because it had seven critical violations, plus another ten non-critical on its last health inspection report.

Due to a language barrier, the restaurant manage had a translator call NBC12 to report everything has been corrected.

On the restaurant's check-up report, the inspector wrote that the time the sushi rice had been sitting out had not been tracked, but that the Wok N Roll was removing sushi from the menu. The report shows all other problems were corrected and the restaurant's annual permit was renewed.

Up next was Knockout Subs inside Chesterfield Towne Center. It had four critical violations, including that the time tomatoes and cheese were sitting on the serving line was not being tracked. That's critical to keeping food safe. When the inspector returned two weeks later, the report said Knock Out had three critical violations, but the previous problems had been corrected.

And in Hanover, La Quinta Inn and Suites at 16280 International Street had four critical violations. The report says the waffle batter was not kept cold enough. It was 76 degrees, so it was moved to the cooler. The same problem happened again on the re-inspection. It was corrected again and the inspector told them to either make it and chill it first, or track the time it sits out. The report says all other violations were fixed.

The NBC12 Hall of Fame Award this week goes to Sandano's at 216 South Washington Highway in Hanover. The Italian take-out restaurant has aced four health inspections in a row.
