A week ending in all "A's" for local restaurants

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The weekend is here which means time to kick back, relax and head out to eat. See if your favorite restaurant will be your go-to spot, on this week's Restaurant Scorecard

After reporting some lower than usual scores, the past few weeks, this week, the Department of Health only handed out A's; however, not all A's are equal.

For example, DHEC says Wahoo's in Murrells Inlet scored an 88. One mishap DHEC inspectors noted in the report, is raw proteins on top of prepared foods, which can be harmful to your health. Other items noted were propping the outside doors open, and containers without labels.

All in all, Wahoo's makes the grade, scoring an "A."

Duffy Street Seafood Shack in North Myrtle Beach, got the same score according to DHEC, only this restaurant requires a follow-up inspection.

An inspector said an employee did not change his gloves between tasks. The walls and floors also have to be cleaned from a build-up of grime. This restaurant got an 88.

Marco's Pizza in Garden City, on the other hand, got a 98. You can stop in here, for more than just a slice.

"We've got subs, Salads, really great salads, chicken wings, chicken dippers, cina stix, cina squares, breadsticks, cheesey bread,” said General Manager Sam Yancey.

Most of those items, ready in less than 15 minutes, which means working against the clock, but even with a fast pace environment, there's always time to stay clean.

"We just have some really good people who know what they're doing, and that checklist helps out a lot,” said Yancey.

Something else to check off, a nearly perfect review from the Department of Health.
