Only One Restaurant Made The Grade During The Last Round Of Cherokee County Inspections

We hop-scotched all over Cherokee County to bring you this addition of the Restaurant Report.  On Hwy. 21 West at Alto Café in Alto, the inspector noted some critical violations during her February 6 inspection: raw chicken was kept out for nearly 4 hours; cheese was found sitting out of the fridge; dirty dishes were found in the hand-washing sink; raw meat was being stored above the dairy products; small roach was found in the kitchen.   Total demerits: 29

Rancho El Jaripeo at 803 S. Dickinson in Rusk was inspected Jan. 30. Beef and Chicken were all being held at an improper temperature; queso was left standing in a bucket for more than two hours; there wasn't a thermometer in the food prep area to check food temperatures; and food was found uncovered and unprotected in one the storage rooms.  There were no towels near the hand-washing sink.  Total demerits: 27

The Dairy Queen at 1301 N. Dickinson in Rusk was inspected Jan. 30.  The soft serve ice cream was more cream than ice when the inspector visited, and foods weren't properly covered in the freezer; there was no thermometer in one of the fridges to ensure proper storage temperatures.  Total demerits: 19 

Al's Place on Hwy. 175 in Cuney was inspected Jan. 17.  The inspector noted absolutely no critical violations and as a result, Al's Place received no demerits.
