Restaurant Scorecard: Flies, other problems at some spots; near-perfect score at another restaurant

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - From pizza to pasta, bagels to burgers, you'll want to know which spot state health inspectors say had flies on the food.

We've got your dining details covered in this week's Restaurant Scorecard.

Back on the list for another inspection is Pizza Roma, also known as Pizza Romeo's, which serves up pizza pies and Italian items at 3318 U.S. 17 South in North Myrtle Beach. In a follow-up inspection, inspectors gave it a 72 out of 100 points, which is down from last week's inspection score of 76.

This time, inspectors took off points for uncovered personal drinks stored on cutting boards, no soap and paper towels at the restroom sink, and ready-to-eat foods without use-by dates. The report also lists a buildup of food on the slicer, which hasn't been used in excess of four hours, and bagged salt and sugar not closed securely during storage and stored on floor.

Lucky Panda offers Chinese dishes at 3300 U.S. 17 South in North Myrtle Beach. It scored a 76 recently. Inspectors noted a hot water faucet handle was in poor repair on the hand sink and said the hot water won't turn on. They also said a food scoop was seen stored in the sink.

Inspectors noted chicken improperly sitting out on the counter before being moved to a cooler. They also said rice was improperly stored, some food was mislabeled and a buildup of black grime was on a can opener blade.

The Bagel Factory serves up breakfast and lunch at 2012 N. Kings Hwy., in Myrtle Beach. The spot recently earned an 80. Inspectors took off points for the presence of flies.

According to the report, food was sitting on prep tables uncovered, allowing flies to land on the items.

Inspectors listed a sink was improperly used to store sanitizer buckets and other items. They also said cutting boards need to be replaced.

Finally, if you're looking for fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs or giant seafood platters, you'll find it all at Carolina Roadhouse. Located at 4617 N. Kings Hwy. in Myrtle Beach, inspectors gave the spot a near-perfect 99 recently, taking off a point for two bulk food storage containers being stored in the preparation area and being labeled with a common name.

Remember, each spot should have their letter grade posted. If you don't see it, just ask.
