HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - According to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control's restaurant inspections this week, there were some low-scoring businesses, including a Little River restaurant that earned a "B" rating.

Casa Villa on U.S. 17 in Little River earned an overall score of 78, which is a "B" rating.  According to the DHEC inspection report, the inspector saw bags of raw chicken and beef stored together in a metal pan, and also observed blood running from those packages.

The report also states the inspector observed ready-to-eat foods in the walk-in cooler were not date marked. The tile floor in the kitchen area also reportedly had heavily cracked surfaces.

El Cerro Grande on Renee Drive in Carolina Forest earned an 88 score, a low "A" rating. The inspector observed food not being stored at the proper temperature, which was considered a priority violation.

The report also noted improper cooling time and temperatures for ground beef and chicken. Additionally, chicken and beef were reportedly stacked on top of each other on the speed racks with lids. The latter violation was corrected during the inspection. 

Hooter's on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach earned a 96 score. The health inspector said there was debris and spillage build-up on the outside of the dishwasher. There was also reportedly a water leak at the PVC pipe below the compartment sink.

Kickback Korner, located on Yaupon Circle in Myrtle Beach, earned a total score of 98. The facility did not have the proper food protection manager certificate, which the report shows prevented the eatery from having a perfect 100 score. 

Magoo's on Waccamaw Drive in Myrtle Beach earned an overall score of 88, a low "A" rating. According to the inspection report, the inspector observed chicken wings visibly raw in the center. The report lists this as a priority violation.

Additionally, the report states written procedures for non-continuous cooking of raw animal foods were not observed in the facility. The inspector also noted the facility used time as a public health control measure for cooked French fries, and ready-to-eat foods were not date marked. 

Supreme Foods Funnel Cake on Fourth Avenue South in Myrtle Beach earned a perfect 100 score.
