“I didn’t even know about the inspection,”  the manager said. “Oh yeah?, it’s right here,” said Becker.

State inspectors say there was a time/temperature safety violation, a soiled floor under cooking equipment and an employee was wearing jewelry while engaging in food prep.

“Not the worst in the world,” said Becker. “But room for improvement.”
