South Florida restaurants with food safety issues and stop sales after being inspected

Stop sales from the Treasure Coast to Boca Raton

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - INTERACTIVE RESTAURANT INSPECTIONS DATABASE: http://bit.ly/1foWeWa

The restaurant with the most violations (33) in our area this week was King’s Super Buffet (4270 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach). They also had a stop sale on potentially hazardous food due to temperature issues. Management told us they resolved the problem and the inspector came back the next day and everything was fine.

Golden Corral #615 (5091 Okeechobee Blvd., Fort Pierce) had the second most violations at 31. They also had a stop sale on potentially hazardous food due to temperature issues. We placed a call for a manager to call us back, but never heard back.

H & K LLC Everything Bagels (9940-B Belvedere Road, Royal Palm Beach) rounds out the top 3 with 30 violations and also had stop sales on potentially hazardous food due to temperature issues. Management told us at times they had a hard time understanding what the inspector said, but at the end of the day they are on the same side, the side of public health and safety. They said they are doing everything to comply.

There were numerous other restaurants in our area that had stop sales on food due to temperature issues. We made calls to these restaurants to give them an opportunity to respond and share with the public what they’ve done to fix the issues. Here is a list of restaurants with stop sales in our area:

Beach Club Cabana Bar & Grill (2625 E. Windsor Blvd., Vero Beach)                                                    Management told us that the fridge was just a few degrees too warm and they threw out the condiments that were kept in the fridge. The fridge was repaired and the inspector gave the all clear when she came back two days later.

Café Gelato Panini (6000 Glades Road Suite 1209C, Boca Raton)                                                                             We placed a call for a manager to call us back, but never heard back.

Pho 16 Vietnameses Cuisine (2905 N. Military Trail, Ste. E, West Palm Beach)                                                     We placed a call to management, but never heard back.

DJ’s Breakfast & Lunch (2911 E. Military Trail, West Palm Beach)                                                                             We could not find a telephone number for this restaurant.

Cucina Fra Diavolo (14414 S. Military Trail, Delray Beach)                                                                          Management told us the problem was corrected and the inspector came in the next day and said everything was good to go.

Brendy’s Yogurt (4801 Linton Blvd. Suite #IA, Delray Beach)                                                                         Management told us the inspector came in shortly after opening and the cooler was not cool enough yet as it takes some time to start cooling. The problem has since been resolved.

Quail Valley-Main Kitchen (2345 Highway A1A, Vero Beach)                                                                     Management told us they called repair guys who came and fixed their refrigerators. The inspector came by the next day for a follow up inspection and everything was up to standard.

Oriente At Costa D’Este (3244 Ocean Drive, Vero Beach)                                                                          Management told us one section was off by just a few degrees and the problem was fixed within a few hours. They said the working relationship with the inspector is good and they have favorable results. They also said no one is perfect and it is how you respond to these situations that matters. The inspector came back the next day and said everything was good.

Roxy’s Pub (309 Clematis St., West Palm Beach)                                                                                                              We placed a call to the restaurant for a manager to call us back, but never heard back.

Nico’s Pizza Italian Cuisine (301 Clematis St., West Palm Beach)                                                                               We placed a call to the restaurant and were told a manager may or may not call us back.  We never heard back from the restaurant.

Pummarola (6000 Glades Road, Suite 1171C, Boca Raton)                                                                                          We placed a call to the restaurant for a manager to call us back, but never heard back.
