Health inspectors cite 3 Casa Grande eateries


The Pinal County Health Department inspected 13 Casa Grande restaurants in March, handing out less than perfect scores to three.

The restaurants dinged were Blimpie Sub/Salads, 1667 N. Trekell Rd., Subway, 847 N. Promenade Parkway, and Hogan’s, 11 S. Mission Parkway.

All three were cited for not maintaining food at proper temperatures, resulting in grades of ‘satisfactory.’

Health inspectors conduct random inspections aimed at ensuring all proper steps are taken to maintain consumer safety, Pinal County officials said. The department can issue violations that are either critical or non-critical.
Critical violations must be fixed within 10 days and affect a location’s score. Non-critical violations must be fixed within 90 days. Grades are based on the number of violations, with an “E” for excellent being the highest possible score. Other scores are “S” for satisfactory, “U” for unacceptable and “N” for needs improvement.
Restaurants receiving perfect scores were Barrington’s Pub LLC, 864 E. Jimmie Kerr Blvd, Wild West Hot Dogs, 611 E. Florence Blvd., Kentucky Fried Chicken, 618 E. Florence Blvd., Chick-Fil-A, 893 N. Promenade Pkwy., Redbrick Pizza, 1269 N. Promenade Pkwy., Domino’s Pizza, 104 W. Florence Blvd., Los Hermanos Mexican Food, 1328 E. Florence Blvd., Chipolte Mexican Grill, 1755 E. Florence Blvd., Tom’s BBQ, 139 W. Cottonwood Ln., and Nico’s Mexican Food, 1226 E. Florence Blvd.
