In this week's Kitchen Cops report, New Hanover County inspectors found two restaurants worthy of low performer status. Lucky Star at 3922 Market Street in Wilmington lost five points for containers and pans found with food particles on them. It also lost points for a bag of ice on the freezer floor, shrimp thawing at room temperature and food in standing water in the bottom of the cooler. Several things need cleaning and some maintenance is needed as well. 84.5 for Lucky Star. And Waffle House in Monkey Junction narrowly missed low performer status the last time it was inspected. Not so lucky this time. Five points off for soiled containers. Three more containers stored wet. And there were problems with the water temperature. 80.5 for Waffle House. This week's Kitchen Cops high performers list includes two restaurants with spotless reports. Pizza Joe's at Independence Boulevard and Carolina Beach Road just opened a few weeks ago. During its first check, the inspector said, the "Kitchen looks great!" A perfect 100 plus two points for workers passing a food safety course. The same top score of 102 goes to the Zaxby's at 6811 Gordon Road in Ogden. The only problem was that the sanitizer was too strong in one of the sinks.
