Food inspectors tag one Maricopa restaurant

True Grit Tavern. File photo


Only one eatery inspected by Pinal County health inspectors July 16-Aug. 15 received a mark down. True Grit Tavern received a rating of satisfactory rather than excellent because a walk-in refrigerator was not holding cold items at 41 degrees or lower. The inspector found lunchmeat, shredded chicken and raw chicken all at 49 degrees. The affected foods were discarded.
