Restaurant Report Card: July 9, 2018

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- A Jackson County deli is at the bottom of our Restaurant Report Card this week. 

McAlister's Deli in Carbondale received an 80 during its most recent inspection. Five points were taken away because cheese was found at 64 degrees, chicken was 75 degrees and tomatoes were 51 degrees. All cold food items must be 41 degrees or cooler. The food was thrown out as a result. The bleach level in the dish machine was not at the proper level. At the time of the inspection the reading was 10 parts per million, it's supposed to be 50 ppm.

Several cleaning violations were found, including utensils, the walls and the floor. Frozen chicken was being thawed improperly as well. Other areas needed to be repaired, like the drain in a hand sink.

The Waffle Company in Mt. Vernon got a 92. The Jefferson County inspector found one critical violation. Five points were deducted because cooked sausage patties were not being held warm enough. Employees were reminded about storing wiping clothes properly when not using the items.

Yamato Steakhouse of Japan in Carbondale has been up and down with the inspector in Jackson County. In June, the eatery got a 95. Two points were lost because the can opener needed to be cleaned and peeler in bad shape needed to be replaced.

Doodles Over Here in Paducah only lost one point. The McCracken County inspector gave the restaurant and pub a 99.
