Two Longview area restaurants have distinguished themselves by winning Blue Ribbon Awards for excellence. In business for only just over a year, "Roli Poli deli" at 414 west Loop 281 already has a history of excellent reports from the health department. Over 4 inspection periods, 4 straight perfect scores earned them a blue ribbon.
Keeping food fresh, and safe is the secret of the family owned business "Hot Dog express" at 106 east Marshall avenue. From top to bottom, a squeaky clean operation, one that has earned 5 straight perfect inspection scores.
"We work very hard at it, we're a small family owned restaurant but we take pride in our work, work hard at it and the a's will come, we're happy to get this award" said Hot Dog express owner Larry Bolton.
Consistency earns Blue Ribbons, and these two restaurants intent to earn more.
