Food 4 Thought - 'Naughty' or 'nice' restaurants revealed

It TMs never a good time of the year to be naughty when it comes to restaurant kitchen cleanliness, but for the four featured eateries this week on Food 4 Thought, none of them will have to worry about the possibility of coal this Christmas.

That TMs because they TMre all listed as top performers after each scoring zero demerits on a recent health inspection report.

Santa would likely classify that as being nice.

As a result, the Food Patrol came bearing stickers to the following restaurants:

Carino TMs Italian Grill on 601 S. Jackson in Pharr, Ram TMs BBQ on 2803 W. Expressway 83, El Pato near the intersection of FM 495 and Raul Longoria in San Juan and Mari TMs Tamales on 131 Salinas Blvd. in Donna.
