HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - Build-up and improper holding temperatures were just a few issues that inspectors with the Department of Health and Environmental Control uncovered at a couple of Horry County restaurants.

We begin this week’s Restaurant Scorecard with Beach Burger/Mama Mia’s at 608 North Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach.

Inspectors found containers of food uncovered in the reach-in freezer.

They also discovered hood filters and the outside of the coolers had build-up. They said the prep table also had flour build-up. The inspection report also said that dust build-up from the air conditioner was on the wall behind the pizza make-top.

There was no self closure on the bathroom door, according to the inspection report.

Inspectors saw that there were missing ceiling tiles throughout the prep and storage areas.

Mildew was found by inspectors along the wall under the three-compartment sink in the prep area.

The inspectors said the lights at the dish machine were not working.

They gave Beach Burger/Mama Mia’s an 88 out of 100.
