RESTAURANT REPORT: Food temperature problems at two restaurants

RESTAURANT REPORT: Food temperature problems at two restaurants

(WWBT) - Health Department officials say food temperatures are one of the most important things they watch in restaurants to make sure the food is safe to eat.

Two local restaurants had food temperature problems on their last inspections.

Crazy Greek at 11500 Busy St. in Chesterfield had five priority violations on its last health inspection. The report says items in the make table were not being kept cold enough. The foods were voluntarily discarded, but the inspector told the restaurant to get the cooler repaired immediately.

When the inspector returned two weeks later, the report says it still had three problems. It says foods in the make table were still being held on ice and the cooler still needed to be fixed.

NBC12 spoke with the manager by phone, who said all violations have been fixed.

Sino Wok at 12114 Bermuda Crossroad Lane in Chesterfield had five priority violations. The inspector wrote that meat filled wontons were not being kept hot enough and cut melon on the buffet was 13 degrees too warm.

The report says the wontons were removed from service and the melon was promptly cooled. When the inspector went back ten days later, Sino Wok had everything correct for a perfect score.

Frank's at 3054 Stony Point Road in Richmond has earned perfect scores on its last four health inspections, so we gave them our Hall of Fame Award.

The restaurant has been serving up New York style and wood-fired pizza and Italian cuisine to the Bon Air neighborhood for 25 years.
