Inspections at area restaurants found a range of violations, from uncovered food sitting on the floor to dirty kitchens in need of cleaning.

CORNELIUS, NC — Recent health inspections at Charlotte-metro restaurants found a variety of violations, from uncovered food sitting on the floor to dirty kitchens in need of cleaning. One area restaurant left uncovered food and unwashed kitchen items sitting out overnight.

Do you truly know how clean your favorite coffee shop or restaurant is? Find out with the most recent restaurant and food service inspections in Charlotte, Huntersville, Davidson, and elsewhere in Mecklenburg County, performed by the Mecklenburg County Health Department.

County health officials recently inspected 103 restaurants in the Charlotte-metro area.

Here are the restaurants inspected in Cornelius and their health grades:

  • Crafty Burg’r N Tap Antiquity, 21726 Catawba Avenue — 97/ A

  • Hello Sailor, 20210 Henderson Road — 98/ A

  • Mac’s Speed Shop, 19601 Liverpool Parkway — 96/ A

  • Subway of Cornelius, 20430 W. Catawba Avenue — 94.5/ A

  • Waterbean Coffee, 19420 Jetton Road — 99/ A

Some of the lowest health grades found during those inspections were at:

  • Pho An Hoa, 4832 Central Avenue, Charlotte — 90/ A

  • Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins, 16131 Lancaster Highway, Charlotte -- 86.5/ B

At Pho An Hoa, seven violations were found during a Jan. 16 inspection and included raw meat stored improperly, pork cracklings and peanuts left out overnight uncovered, a slicer and utensils left out overnight without washing, employee medication stored above clean plates, and an uncovered colander of roasted onions sitting on the floor.

During a Jan. 17 inspection at Dunkin Donuts/ Baskin Robbins on Lancaster Highway, an inspector noted 11 violations, deducting the most points for an employee failing to wash their hands after handling money and before donning gloves. According to the inspection report, there was no soap available at a handwashing sink, pink build-up forming in the ice machine areas of the kitchen and equipment that were soiled and in need of cleaning and dirty floors with “significant build up of black residue and food debris” throughout the facility.

Results from the Mecklenburg County Health Department inspections done Jan. 16 - Jan. 22, 2019 are listed below. You may look up your favorite restaurant or find more detailed information about this latest batch of inspections here.
