There is standing water on the concrete where you enter the dumpster pad and back door. This needs to be repaired so there is no standing water on the concrete. Repair within 90 days!!! also, you need to clean the grease barrel more often.

I found buckets and a broom stored in the mop sink. Do not store things in this sink and keep clean! also, brooms, dustpans and a mop were stored on the floor by the front handsink. You need to provide an area to hang up all these items.

The salad "trough cooler" is freezing product and needs to be repaired. Do not double pan product. Repair this unit. Also, the glasswash machine at the bar is not sanitizing. Staff had found the problem and were not using it. Repair asap. Repair the beer cooler that has standing water in the bottom.

The shaved ice machine drain line needs to be permanently air gapped at the floor drain and not just lying on the floor. Also, fix the hot water drip at the handsink.

You need to have a waste basket at each handsink.

Your store is not being kept clean enough. The following areas were observed dirty: the mop sink basin was full of debris, storage shelves in prep areas, walk in cooler and freezer floors, the dumpster and grease barrel and the pad around it, grease build-up on water pipes in the exhaust hood, the mobile rack by the main line. Managers need to hold staff accountable to keep your store cleaned everyday and also to keep areas organized!!!

Staff were observed portioning up broccoli without washing it first. Produce must be washed before it is prepped and served. Corrected by washing.

Wash the silverware storage bins more often. I observed food debris in the bins.

A couple of the floor drains were clogged. One on the main line and one at the bar. Be sure to routinely clean out the drains. Also, 2 soap dispensers have come off the wall. Re-apply them to the walls.

You need to use qt-40 test papers for the type of sanitizer you are using. Discontinue use of qt-10 papers. Also, i would like you to get 'thermolabels' to check your main dishwasher.

Repeat violation 2 times. Once again, i observed staff stacking pans of food on top of each other with pans in contact with food (redskin potatos). Okay to stack foods with lids on them, not directly in contact with foods. Corrected
