Food 4 Thought - Top and low performer scores at Church's Chicken

Kitchen cleanliness comes into question at a Church TMs Chicken with high demerits.

The restaurant on 1264 East Washington in Brownsville scored 22 demerits on a health inspection report.

Kitchen cops busted employees eating in the food prep area, not wearing gloves with ready-to-eat foods and found a refrigerator condenser dripping onto food.

The Food Patrol got a hold of a number of dirty photos from inside the kitchen.

Management was asked to speak with the Food Patrol about the problems.

Nobody came to the counter.

It was quite a different story at the Church TMs Chicken along Expressway 83 Frontage and Alamo Roads in Alamo.

Assistant Manager Mario Cruz was ecstatic to receive his restaurant TMs second top performer sticker from the Food Patrol this year for zero demerits.

He credited his staff TMs hard work but also acknowledged how one low performer score, within the restaurant franchise, hurts everyone.

If 1 drops it, we all look bad, Cruz said.
