Jacksonville Inspection Report

Church's Chicken at 1011 South Jackson was inspected March 6th. The inspector found chicken strips sitting out all night to thaw... a serious violation.  That violation was corrected on sight... the chicken was thrown out. Also among the violations, a drinking cup at the food prep table needed a lid. The handwashing sink was full of glass cleaners and trash bags.  Roaches were noted on the food prep table, and elsewhere in the prep area. (An exterminator was scheduled for that night.) Food permit and last inspection report not posted as required. The score: 73.  The next day, the inspector returned, and was satisfied the restaurant had been properly cleaned after extermination.

Golden Corral at 2402 Beaumont was inspected March 4th. Among the violations, proper reheating procedures were not being followed. (Problem was corrected during the inspector's visit.) Cross contamination of raw foods. Scrambled eggs, not covered properly. Several sinks leaking. Trash noted in the sweet potatoes. And, food prep area needs cleaning. The score: 80.
