Restaurant Report: Former hall of fame restaurant has 5 critical violations

We've given some of the Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants the Hall of Fame Awards for acing health inspections. But this time, one location is in the Restaurant Report for five critical violations.

It's the Chipotle at 11440 Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield. The health inspection report says an inspector went over after receiving a complaint about the restaurant. Among the five critical violations the inspector found were that the beef steak was not cooked to a high enough temperature, and steak, shredded beef, and tofu were not being kept hot enough.

We contacted Chipotle Mexican Grill headquarters, which sent us this statement:

"The health and safety of our customers is always our highest priority and we have an excellent track record with health departments around the country. The violations that took place on April 27 were immediately addressed and this restaurant has been operating in accordance with our high standards ever since."

Chipotle earned a perfect score on its follow-up inspection the next week.

Up next, Noodles and Friends, which is inside the New Grand Mart of ethnic food at 7415 Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield. The health inspection for Noodles and Friends says it had 5 critical violations, including that some raw seafood had to be thrown out because two coolers were not keeping food cold enough. When the inspector returned a few days later, most problems were fixed. But another fridge was not the right temperature and they were told to have it adjusted.
