RESTAURANT REPORT: "Too many critical violations"

A health inspector wrote, "Too many critical violations," about Rico's Mexican Grill at 11321 Old Nuckols Road. It had six critical violations. The report says cheese dip was not adequately cooled to prevent bacteria growth and a tub of it was on the floor. The inspector also noted telling them to throw out some rice because it was sitting about 30 degrees below the proper temperature.

Up next, Hong Kong King Buffet at 10344 Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield. We visited them in January because of food temperature violations. This time, the restaurant had four critical violations. The report says shredded cheese and sushi items were not being kept cold enough. On the follow-up report two weeks later, the inspector wrote that the dish machine still needed fixing to make it disperse enough sanitizer, but the other problems were corrected.
