MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Chicken wings in buckets that were two days old. Plus, Is it salt or panko? Dressing or meatballs? And Carolina Forest will soon go Cajun, plus there is a perfect score.

We begin this week’s Restaurant Scorecard with Ultimate California Pizza at 4003 Deville Ave., in Myrtle Beach. Inspectors found a drink on the prep table with no lid.

Food accumulation was found on containers of flour, while a deflector plate in the ice machine had mildew buildup.

Cooked chicken wings were also stored in buckets with a prep date two days prior, and a beverage cup was found being used as a scoop for sugar.

Ultimate California Pizza received an 88 out of 100.

Next up is Pranzarelli’s Pizza at 9660 N. Kings Hwy., in Myrtle Beach. Inspectors said date markings were missing on meatballs and a tub of marinara.

Also, a container of salt was labeled as panko, dressing was labeled as meatballs, and old labels were not washed off.

A metal-banded paint brush was found to be used in the kitchen. Inspectors also discovered dust on hood filters, while ceiling tiles were missing in the silverware washing area.

Pranzarelli’s Pizza received an 88 out of 100.

Your high score this week goes to Joe’s Diner By The Airport at 2895 Fred Nash Blvd. Joe’s scored a perfect 100.
