Jacksonville, FLA. - French Fry Heaven is a stand alone food cart located at the Saint Johns Town Center in Jacksonville. This week the state health inspector issued an emergency at the mobile restaurant. It was temporarily closed. Here's what we found in the state report:

Three high priority violations including...

No sanitizer of any kind for washing dishes
French fries held at 100 degrees (supposed to be at 135 or above)
The cart had a broken water pump

French Fry Heaven Owner, Scott Nelowet says just five months ago French Fry Heaven was given the state award for going an entire year with zero health violations. He says what happened this week was very upsetting, "We had a water pump that had some wires that were frayed and it turned off Sunday night. The next day as the plumber was on the way to fix it... the health department showed up."

Scott says everything is fixed now and he looks forward to being on the clean plate award list again the next time the health inspector drops by.  

Other restaurants at the top of the high priority list this week include:

Greek Yamas Cuisine Restaurant on Deer Lake Court in Jacksonville had eight high priority violations including live flies in the kitchen. That's a repeat violation for the restaurant.

At Banana Leaf on San Jose Boulevard in Jacksonville there were six high priority violations including temperature issues with the cooked noodles and cooked chicken. The manager had to throw them out. 

The following restaurants had zero violations and earn our clean plate award:

Davinci's Pizza: Atlantic Beach
Firehouse Subs: American Heritage Life Drive, Jacksonville
Beach Smoothie at Allstate: American Heritage Life Drive, Jacksonville
Peter Sausages & Hot Dogs: Beach Blvd
