Thanks for putting the violations at a quick glance. It is still amazing that even knowing that the public will see these reports, restaurants still disregard the laws and continue to break the rules. I have indeed changed where I will eat due to these reports. I hate when employee purses are where food it prepared. The bottom of a purse is one of the dirtiest places known to man. To think that someone would prepare food on the same surface is plain old nasty! On the positive note, the Burger King is always getting a great score. The staff over there is friendly as well. The food is always hot and taste fresh. They have a great team over there and it is always a "go to" place no matter for breakfast, lunch or supper. Keep up the good work Burger King and Kristi!

I wish the health check would include whether or not a business has coat hooks in the bathroom stalls. It is unpleasant to visit a bathroom and have to try to hang your coat over the door and find some place in the stall to hang or sit your pocketbook without putting it on the floor. Never, ever sit your pocketbook on the floor of a bathroom stall! As you said, Cynthia, the bottom of a pocketbook is filthy.
