RESTAURANT REPORT: Roaches and drain flies found in Henrico restaurant

RESTAURANT REPORT: Roaches and drain flies found in Henrico restaurant

(WWBT) - Roaches and drain flies were a problem for a Chinese restaurant in Henrico on their last health inspection. However, we saw pest control arrive when we were there, and the manager says the problem is fixed.

It happened at Cheng Du Chinese Restaurant at 9503 West Broad Street in Henrico, which had eight critical violations, plus 11 non-critical violations.

The report says the inspector "observed live roaches and several drain flies in the facility."  Some violations were corrected during the inspection.

We dropped by to talk with the manager, who wasn't there at the time, but we did see pest control enter the restaurant.

When we spoke with the manager later by phone, she said they have already treated for pests twice, will continue to treat the restaurant monthly, and that the problem is gone.

She said they have either corrected or almost finished correcting every problem on the report.

In Goochland, Bert's Buckstop and Cafe at 1420 Broad Street Road had four critical violations, plus three non-critical.

The report says chicken tenders, corn dogs, egg rolls, jambalaya, mashed potatoes, and potato wedges in the hot hold units were not staying hot enough.

The inspector told them to reheat some foods and toss out others. They did and other violations were promptly corrected.

When the inspector returned two weeks later, Bert's Buckstop had everything corrected but one non-critical.

There hasn't been a speck of anything wrong on the health inspections of Reed and Nancy's Funnelcakes.

We gave their food truck our Hall of Fame Award for earning perfect scores on nine health inspections since they opened four years ago.

"It's a very impressive award to receive. It makes all our hard work worthwhile," said co-owner Reed DeBois.

"We do a lot of cleaning in this trailer, and after every event, it's full of powdered sugar and grease and funnel cakes. So every event, we have to pull everything out and clean everything and get it ready for the next show."
