Lowest scoring

Maverick’s Country Bar: 81 — Whipped cream is date marked 27 days prior to inspection. Chlorine sanitizer is not dispensing at bar dishmachine (container is full, extensively primed). Detergent container is empty at bar dishmachine. Empty paper towel dispenser at rear service and no paper towels at bar. Cookline and bar spray bottles are not labeled.

Holiday Inn Express and Suites: 82 — Food is unsafe, adulterated or not honestly presented. Potentially hazardous foods (eggs, milk products and meats) were found to be holding at 50-53 degrees in the commercial food refrigerator. During the inspection the health department thermometer was calibrated in ice water and found to be at 33 degrees. The inability of the dishwashing machine to sanitize has been an ongoing problem for this hotel to manage. Staff was required by the health department to log the dishwasher final rinse sanitizer concentration daily. When the machine broke down, staff stopped logging sanitizer concentration and stopped using the sanitizing dishwasher; management was afraid to address the issue because the owner would not approve the cost of repairs. Kitchen staff washed dishes in the single compartment sink with no sanitizing step and a lack of regard to spreading diseases among customers. Staff and management are not sanitizing dishes per state and federal requirements. Staff are not checking and holding milk products, eggs and meat at a safe temperature. Wet towels are used during service times to clean tables and wipe up spills. No bleach water is set up until after the kitchen is closed and is only used during clean up.
