MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Magoo's Sports and Spirits sits just off of highway 501. The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) recently dropped in for a routine inspection. The report shows  Magoo's was cited for nine violations. 

"Always a couple of little things slip through the cracks," said Magoo's owner James Mulvanerton about the routine inspection.

Mulvanerton says his restaurant  is getting ready for DHEC's follow up visit. "It's just a laundry list of all the little things that need to be done. We had a light bulb out. We had chipped tile. We had some shelves that were dirty."

According the DHEC report, that's not all.  The inspector also noted Magoo's workers need to clean the counters, coolers, freezers, under the bar, hand sink, inside the ice machine, the floor and walls.

Mulvanerton says since the inspection, he's rolled up his own sleeves and got right to work.

"Wednesday night I was here from four in the morning until six in the morning scrubbing floors," added Mulvanerton.  

Magoo's scored an 88, which is an ‘A' rating. As for DHEC's follow-up inspection scheduled for next week, Mulvanerton says his restaurant will be ready to go.

A Murrells Inlet burger joint also had DHEC drop in for a routine inspection. Five Guys Burger and Fries scored a 99. "We have very high cleanliness standards," said restaurant manager Luke Handlesman.

For Handlesman, having a clean restaurant is all part of keeping their customers happy and not worried about the safety of the food or how clean the kitchen is.

"We rather have them focus on the fun atmosphere, the rock and roll music, and snack on some peanuts," added Handlesman.

According to the DHEC report, the inspector did find one violation and ordered Five Guys employees  to clean the mop sink.

    Summer hasn't even technically started, yet the summer-like heat and humidity will continue to reach uncomfortable levels the next few days. We start off this morning with mugginess in the air. High temperatures reach near 87 along the Grand Strand but easily make it into the low 90s inland. The heat index will feel like 95 to 100 along the coast, but more like 102 to 105 inland.
