Sometimes you are better off with what you already have. That was the case for the Pizza Hut on Oleander Drive during a recent re-inspection. For starters, the inspector counted off four points because there were flies in the kitchen and dining room and roaches in the kitchen. Five points off because chicken and sausage in the cooler were above the 45-degree maximum. Five more points off because bowls, plates, pans and a slicer were all stored dirty and there was no sanitizer in the dishwasher. Another 1.5 points for bowls and pans stacked wet. Nine violations in all and a score of 78.5. To make matters worse, it's nine points lower than the 87.5 the restaurant scored last month. Across the street to Chuck E. Cheese, where on Sept. 11, an inspector found pasta salad with a use-by date of Aug. 27. Several items on the salad bar were stored without a sneeze guard, diced chicken stored at too high a temperature in the prep cooler and several items and areas need cleaning. An 85 for Chuck E. Cheese. Two local restaurants make up this week's high performers list. A New Hanover County health inspector said the "Kitchen still looks great" at Ruby Tuesday on Military Cutoff Road. A perect 102 for workers passing a food safety course. And the same top score of 102 for the Shell Island Catering Kitchen at Wrightsville Beach.
