Tom's is tops on the November 6 Restaurant Report Card

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- Tom's Place in DeSoto is our high scorer this week. The Jackson County inspector gave the spot a 96. A urinal in the men's room needed to be repaired and a spill in the beverage cooler needed to be cleaned.

On the flip side, Ryan's Steakhouse in Mt. Vernon was our low scorer. The buffet racked up 13 violations, four of them were labeled as critical. The eatery received a 73 from the Jefferson County inspector. Custard and ice cream were not being kept cold enough. That was a five point loss.

Four points were taken away because the bakery unit was too warm. It's supposed to be 41 degrees and was recorded at 58. There was no sanitizer in the dish machine, that was a four point loss. There was a gap at the bottom of the backdoor. Four points were also deducted because pests can get inside the building, but none were found during the check.

Yamato Steakhouse of Carbondale got an 85 from the Jackson County inspector. There was a five point critical violation found. Lawn mower fuel was being stored in a room with food items. Meat was being stored in to-go bags and some poultry and seafood were not being stored properly in the cooler. Employees were also reminded about wearing hair restraints while in the kitchen.

Lone Star in Mt. Vernon earned a 91. No critical violations were found. Soap was missing from the restrooms and there was a buildup of dust in some areas of the restaurant.

Just Hamburgers in Paducah received a 95. A couple of cleaning problems were found by the McCracken County inspector.
