MIDLAND-ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

It was another busy week for health inspectors in Midland and Odessa. There were several top performers for the week of July 31st through August 4th. However, two restaurants in Midland made our low performer list.

- Cross contamination of foods
- No hot water
- Cooler not working

- No dates/labels on watermelons/onions
- Uncovered buckets of ice in cooler
- Hot water not warm enough
