All but one eatery inspected by Pinal County health inspectors April 16-May 15 received excellent marks. The Silver Spur Grill at The Duke at Rancho El Dorado, however, had some cold-holding and other problems to fix.
By law, refrigerated food must be held no warmer than 41 degrees F. The inspector found one refrigerator at 59 degrees and another at 50 degrees. A refrigerator was also leaking condensation. Some food items were found with expired date marks and may have been incorrectly dated. Several items were discarded. The person in charge was instructed to repair equipment, review date requirements and make a hand-washing sink more accessible. The restaurant was given a “satisfactory” mark.
