I know there's a system, but I still don't understand how you find insects, alive or dead, in "numerous locations" and get a 95 on your inspection. Ew!

I agree, but at least they were dead. LOL.
Tammy Osier December 30, 2012 at 08:08 PM
My question would be....were they in or out of food? That would be the deal breaker for me. lol
Cathy Peters January 23, 2013 at 01:51 PM
If bugs are there, they are in the food.
Cathy Peters January 23, 2013 at 01:52 PM
I will never eat there again. Last time I was there the Kitchen was so nasty. We left.

Shut these places down...no more putting the public at risk! These places have a grace period to fix but as soon as the yearly inspect is done it's back to usual! Inspections need to be done every 3/4 months period!
