Burger spot, Mexican restaurant among worst scorers in Tarrant County health inspections

by admin

A Tarrant County gas station had to close its beverage area for deep cleaning, and two other food establishments were significantly cited for violations, in recent health inspections.

From July 24 through July 30, 77 restaurants underwent health inspections throughout Tarrant County, excluding those in Fort Worth, Arlington, Euless and North Richland Hills, which conduct their own. No restaurant was closed for health violations, but one did score over 29 demerits which will require a follow-up at a later date.

Incredible Burger, located at 1101 Melbourne Road in Hurst, scored a 33 and was cited for a broken freezer, food cross contamination and lack of hairnets worn by employees. Inspectors also said the grill’s vent hood has not been cleaned since January 2021.

Also scoring poorly was El Patriota, located at 312 E Pipeline Rd in Hurst, with a 29. El Patriota was cited for a repeat violation of improper cooling of cooked pork and “out of control” fruit flies, where the food establishment was asked to hire a pest control company.

The QuikTrip on Hurst Boulevard was cited for a fruit fly infestation. Inspectors also said that the gas station had a repeat violation for a gap in the back door that let in insects and rodents and in the back of the establishment, around the tea and soda areas, they were unclean with “excessive standing liquid, dirt, slime-like substances in hoses.”

The gas station’s manager agreed to voluntarily shut down the soda area while it’s deep cleaned.
