  • 1320 - Repeat There was no temperature measuring device located in ANY of the refrigerators.
  • 1450 - Repeat Refrigerators seem to be unable to keep foods 41 degrees or colder. And this seems to be the SAME THING every time I come. Last time and today, the walk in was iced up. The 2 door True unit has been out of order for over 6 months.

  • 0820 - Corrected During Inspection Critical Repeat Cold holding at improper temperatures: foods in the sandwich unit and in the walk in are ABOVE 41 degrees. The walk in is iced up and maybe the sandwich unit is also since there is water standing in the bottom.

  • 1450 - Corrected During Inspection Only ONE of your three existing refrigerators is holding foods below 41 degrees. Your 2 door True unit is out of order. You may NOT operate if you are unable to keep potentially hazardous foods BELOW 41 degrees.

November 06, 2008 (Routine)


Violations: Comments:
I am disappointed, since I called and told you I would be here this week. You CAN do better than this.
NOTE: Remove the aluminum foil on shelves. Any liners allow food and other debris to accumulate and attract bugs. If the surface is old and rough, then re-surface it
NOTE: Foods in the walk in are 41 to 42, even though the thermometer on the wall reads in the 30's. You need to set this unit so foods stay about 38 degrees so you have a margin of error.

July 23, 2008 (Routine)


Violations: Comments:
NOTE: During the past several inspections there have been potentially hazardous foods stored in the top or the bottom of the sandwich unit which is UNABLE to hold foods BELOW 41 degrees. In each case the PHFoods have been discarded. If employees can not learn NOT to put PHFoods in this unit. The unit must be REMOVED from the kitchen.
It's time for some general cleaning.

April 10, 2008 (Critical Procedures)


Violations: Comments:
This was a critical control inspection so ONLY critical items are debited, but there are two non critical items which need to be addressed:
1. The hot wash water and the hot rinse water in a chemical dish machine is to be 120 minimum. Today yours is 115 degrees.
2. The hood filters and drip tray needs to be cleaned.
Thank you for the following: accessible hand sink with soap and towels and sign; thermometers in all refrigerators; two calibrated food thermometers; all potentially hazardous foods , except tomatoes in top of make unit) are at correct temperatures; the cook is in a clean outfit with hair restraints and gloves for handling ready to eat foods.

January 10, 2008 (Routine)


Violation: 1770 A - Critical Repeat The following equipment food-contact surfaces were observed soiled to sight and touch:cutting boards have food debris on them.
DAILY these cutting boards need to be SCRUBBED back to WHITE before rinsing and sanitizing, and they should be washed - rinsed - sanitized at least each 4 hours during the day when in continuous use. Clean and sanitize these surfaces for food contact.
Comments:
NOTE: Please have the dish machine man check the concentration of soap and sanitizer; they are excessive, and that is costing you money.
Thank you for the following: accessible hand sink with soap and towels and sign; thermometers in all refrigerators; potentially hazardous foods at correct temperatures; a food thermometer for monitoring food temps; equipment, silver, dishes, glasses are clean to sight and touch; clean employees with aprons, hair restraints and gloves as needed; dealing with violations from previous inspections.

October 31, 2007 (Follow-up)


Violation: -

Comments:
WOW !!! You all have done a lot of work and it shows. Thank you for the toil. I hope you are as proud of the establishment as I am. Keep "replacing ceiling tiles on your "to do" list. The new one almost put your eyes outs. Thanks.

October 04, 2007 (Routine)


Violations: Comments:
You have made progress dealing with violations from the past inspection. Thank you for your help. You will need to address all the ones above and do a through "fall cleaning" before October 31, 2007 so your permit can be re-issued. Give me a call at number listed on this sheet when you are ready for an inspection.

July 05, 2007 (Routine)


Violations: Comments:
There are two issues here: 1 the immediate concern for food temperatures and use of the dish machine and 3 compartment sink, cleaning the cutting boards REGULARLY, etc. 2. The long term items that need to be addressed. The manager and I spoke several months ago and he is aware the 2007-8 permit will be allowed to run out and not be re-issued if all the items are not fixed. He has had information to this effect for well over a year. For the critical items which are immediate, I am asking my supervisor to follow up on these since I will be on vacation almost all of the remainder of July. If you wish to call him before he calls you, his name is Mac McMahan and he may be reached at 540-332-7830, extension 350.

April 19, 2007 (Routine)


Violations: Comments:
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: It is time to have the refrigeration service man work on your refrigeration units.You MUST call me at 540-332-7830, extension 343 or at my home phone 540-943-9563 AS SOON AS the walk in and sandwich unit (and the 2 door True unit if you decide to fix it) are holding foods 41 degrees or colder.You must find a way to keep the food in the walk in 41 degrees until the walk in is repaired. You do have 2 freezers and 1 homestyle refrigerator or you can use the beer refrigerator in the front of the house. IF I RECEIVE NO CALL BY NOON TOMORROW, Friday, 20 April 2007, then I will ask the health director to suspend your permit.
ANOTHER NOTE; Your permit EXPIRES 31 October 2007. Renewal of the permit is not an automatic thing. Unless there is some real effort put into this establishment, I will ask the health director to allow this permit to elapse. Look at the back inspections and you will see countless notations concerning the refrigeration units, the dish washer, the back storage room. NOW is the time to decide if you wish to put money and effort into this kitchen. I and my supervisor would welcome a chance to speak with the manager and the owner of the building about this at any time.
20 April 2007 NOTE: The manager called to say the walk in has been fixed. A bird was building in the mechanism on the roof. Refrigerator is now holding in the 30's. He also said he would be able to deal with the other issues in the near future.

January 11, 2007 (Critical Procedures)


Violations: Comments:
NOTE: Starting in March 2007, refrigerators must maintain potentially hazardous foods at 41 degrees or colder.
NOTE: This is a Critical Control inspection. There are some violations from the October 4, 2006 inspection that still need to be addressed. I have attached a copy of that inspection for your information. These noncritical items need to be put in your "to do" list.
Thank you for the following: Two calibrated food thermometers; all PHFoods (except one) are at correct temperatures; employees are clean, with apron, short hair and plastic gloves when needed; raw meats are being stored appropriately in the walk in and reach in refrigerators; the soda drink nozzles are clean; bathrooms are clean and well stocked; addressing 8 items from the past inspection.

Thank you for the following: raw foods are being stored on the bottom shelves in the walk in and cooked foods are on the upper shelves - GOOD PRACTICE; the employees are clean; they have aprons and their hair ties back, and the cook used gloves when needed; the soda drink nozzles are clean; the customer's bathrooms are clean and well stocked: the equipment along the grill line is really shiny and clean, so is the slicer, the 3 compartment sink, the microwaves, and steam table.
There are a lot of violations marked here, and when I look at past inspections there are times when many violations are noted. It has taken a time for the back part of the house to reach this stage and it will take some time to turn it around, BUT TURN IT AROUND YOU MUST. If you wish I will come in and explain all the above to the owner at his convenience and you can work out a schedule of compliance. You may telephone me at 1-540-3327830 extension 343 (Staunton Health Department). I will call you back and we can set up a time and day since I only work part time and am not in Buena Vista each week. I am depending on you to begin working on these issues and I will be discussing this with my supervisor.

Continue to work on the cleaning issues. Recommend to implement a master cleaning schedule to keep up with the cleaning. The mop sink located off of the kitchen is required to have a mixing faucet with hot and cold running water going through the faucet. Correct this item by the next routine inspection. Highly recommend a remodel of certain structural items that are worn and no longer cleanable.
