MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Larry Long is a regular at Little River House of Pizza.
"It's good. Very good," said Long. He says he noticed the restaurant had a 'B' rating from DHEC instead of an 'A' rating on its door Friday morning. The rating downgrade came after a DHEC inspector dropped by this week for a routine health inspection and found ten violations.
Two of them considered critical violations by DHEC. The reports shows the inspector reportedly saw an employee handling cheese with an unprotected cut. There was another critical violation noted for sausage being held at hazardous temperatures.
The other violations were cited for improper food storage and improper storage of personal items. The report shows the inspector noted the slicer,the dough machine and the floor underneath the refrigerator could all use some cleaning.
Even though DHEC found problems in the kitchen, Long says he'll keep coming back for his pizza fix.
"Well they'll change. Everyone makes mistakes," added Long.
The restaurant's manager says he's taken care of all the issues the inspector noted and added the employee with a cut on his hand was asked to stay home from work until the wound is completely healed. DHEC will return to Little River House of Pizza for a follow up inspection, and the manager says they'll be ready.
Waffle House on Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach is where the Hollices grab breakfast when they visit the Grand Strand.
"Everything was great. No problem whatsoever, said Billy Hollice. The restaurant also had a visit from DHEC this week.
"On a scale from one to ten, I'd give it a ten."
Unlike Hollice, the DHEC inspector didn't give Waffle House a perfect score. The report shows Waffle House was cited for six violations. The inspector listed five items that need to be cleaned and noted a part of the wall could use repair work. None of these violation are considered critical by DHEC. Waffle House scored a 93 and an 'A' rating.
