MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Many are planning to take a break from the kitchen and head out to eat this weekend, but first, we wanted to let you know how some area restaurants performed in their most recent health inspections.
First up is Mexico Lindo at 2801 North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach. They scored an 88. Which earns them an "A" letter grade.
Inspectors found cold foods holding higher than 45 degrees, which they threw away. Food held above that temperature is potentially hazardous because it's more prone to have bacteria.
It was also noted the dish machine wasn't clean and the ware on the machine was not maintained.
Up next is a well known restaurant chain, Cheeseburger In Paradise located at 7211 North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach.
Inspectors also found foods held at improper temperatures at this restaurant, in addition to some foods missing proper labels.
The restaurant was also documented for handsinks that needed cleaning. In the end, inspectors gave them an 88, an "A" letter grade.
Next, inspectors headed out to Longbeards, located at 5040 Carolina Forest Boulevard in Myrtle Beach.
This restaurant also received an "A" letter grade with the score of an 88.
Inspectors say they found chicken and beef being held at improper temperatures, along with wiping cloths that were "excessively soiled."
Inspectors say the cloths weren't being stored in a sanitizer bucket, as required by DHEC regulations.
Another well known establishment scored very well.
KISS coffeehouse, located at 1320 Celebrity Circle inside Broadway at the Beach, received a near perfect score of 99.
The only problem inspectors found was a few items that were stored the wrong way.
Remember, you can find out how a restaurant did before you eat. Each establishment is required to have their score posted. If you don't see it, just ask.
