(Toledo News Now) – There were good news and bad news in this week's Restaurant Ratings report. Some restaurants racked up violations in the double digits, while others received zero.
It's not bottomless drinks at Parkway Sports Bar and Grill, but drain flies. Located on Parkway Plaza in Maumee, staff members have been working to replace a split door gasket and repair a leak in a cooler. Inspectors found water being soaked up by rags at the time of inspection.
An employee said all the violations had been fixed.
Those behind the counter at Burger King on Conant Street in Maumee can focus on fresh food and speedy service. Inspectors handed down a perfect report, even noting the facility is very clean and well-maintained.
Within 24 hours of the inspectors' initial visit, a follow-up was needed at The Original Gino's on Dussel Drive in Maumee after the restaurant received seven violations.
Temperatures on the buffet line and prep top cooler were holding pizza toppings above the required range, forcing staff to throw away a lot of food. Dust, dirt, grime and mold are making themselves at home atop hood filters on the pizza ovens, above fryers and inside the ice chute on the beverage dispensing machine. Inspectors also found preassembled food being held by time. The restaurant is not licensed to hold food by time in lieu of correct temperatures.
The exact opposite can be said for Pizza Hut on Ralston Circle, along Reynolds Road in west Toledo. The temperature log for cheese, sausage, pepperoni and ham, among others, all checked in safe. During a 70-minute inspection, no violations could be uncovered.
From the floors to the walls and ceilings, Mancy's Restaurant on Phillips Avenue in west Toledo is in need of consistent cleaning, according to the July 31 standard inspection report, which gave the restaurant 15 violations.
Severe floor damage and cracked tiles line a server area that is in need of repair immediately. Additionally, paint is beginning to peel, duct tape is being used to patch a countertop and dust is coating walls and ceilings. Inspectors also found mold growth in the ice machine and a broken light shield above the cook line.
UPDATE: Gus Mancy, Co-Owner of Mancy's Restaurant Inc., issued the following statement Aug. 21:
"Mancy's has an excellent history with our health department. Also, we are proud of our positive working relationship with the health department.
"Corrective action was taken swiftly on all matters at hand. As a long standing Toledo business, we take great pride in producing the highest quality foods in a clean and safe environment."
Los Amigos Family Restaurant on Stickney Avenue in north Toledo received seven violations, with three being repeats. Repeat violations included the potential for food borne illness and gravy in the steam table found below 135 degrees. To limit the growth of bacteria, foods in hot holding must maintain a temperature of 135 degrees or higher. Buildup is sitting comfortably on hood filters, as well as in the freezer, there is a leak in the kitchen, damaged flooring, and no paper towels were available in the men's bathroom.
Five repeat violations popped up out of a total of 13 violations at Tim and Ed's Bar and Grill on Bush Street in north Toledo. Repeats included damaged gaskets, buildup inside the kitchen hand sink, and both front and side doors propped open. All entrances need to be closed to prevent pests and rodents from entering the establishment, according to the city of Toledo building fire codes.
Inspectors also noted food debris and grease covering the stovetop, buildup on storage bins used to house clean utensils, buildup inside the ice machine, damaged flooring, as well as general cleaning needed in the men's restroom.
