Restaurant Report: Slime in ice machine found in some Detroit Lakes eateries


CLEANLINESS OF EACH RESTAURANT CAN BE TRICKY. VALLEY NEWS TEAM’S CHRISTINA CRAIG HAS THE DISH ON WHICH DETROIT LAKES EATERIES AREN’T DOING SO HOT. NAT – “CAN I HELP WHO’S NEXT PLEASE.” OUR FIRST STOP: BURGER KING ON HIGHWAY 10. WE WERE JUST THERE THIS WINTER BECAUSE OF SEVERAL CRITICAL VIOLATIONS… “OUR BEVERAGE BAR HAD SOME SPILLS ON IT, SO WE GOT IT CLEANED UP RIGHT AWAY.” BUT APPARENTLY THEY HAVEN’T CLEANED UP THEIR ACT. IN THEIR MOST RECENT REPORT, THEY WERE CITED FOR 8 VIOLATIONS, 4 CRITICAL. SOME OF THE MORE SEVERE OFFENSES INCLUDE BUILD UP IN THE ICE MACHINE, INSIDE THE PREP COOLER, AND ON THE CUTTING BOARDS. “THIS TIME AROUND MANAGEMENT DID NOT WANT TO COMMENT ON CAMERA, BUT SAY THEY TAKE ALL VIOLATIONS SERIOUSLY AND HAVE MADE THE APPROPRIATE CHANGES.” “I ORDER IT EVERY TIME I COME HERE.” A FAVORITE FOR MANY… BUT UNFORTUNATELY, ZORBAS PIZZA WAS SLAPPED WITH THE MOST VIOLATIONS… TOTALING 10… 3 CRITICAL. “I’VE NEVER SEEN ANY OF IT. THE BATHROOM IS ALWAYS CLEAN WHEN I GO THERE. AND THE PLACE IS ALWAYS CLEAN WHEN I’M THERE. AND THE FOOD IS ALWAYS FRESH. SO, I WAS SURPRISED WHEN YOU SAID THEY HAD SOME VIOLATIONS.” A PREP TABLE WASN’T HOLDING THE PROPER TEMPERATURE AND THE ICE MACHINE HAD A THIN LAYER OF SLIME — ARE JUST SOME OF THE MORE SEVERE. MANAGEMENT SAYS ALL OF THE PROBLEMS WERE FIXED ON THE SPOT. NAT – CAR IN THE WASHINGTON SQUARE MALL SITS DAIRY QUEEN. THEY WERE SLAPPED WITH 7… 2 CRITICAL. ONE VIOLATION — THE BLIZZARD MIXER NEEDED A GOOD CLEANING. SINCE THE REPORT, MANAGEMENT SAYS EVERYTHING HAS BEEN FIXED…AND EFFORT TO KEEP YOU SAFE WHEN DINNING OUT. IN DETROIT LAKES, CHRISTINA CRAIG, VALLEY NEWS LIVE. UNFORTUNATELY THERE WAS NO RESTAURATS SPOTLESS AND DESERVING OF THE CLEAN PLATE
