ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Since we did not have a restaurant report last week, we’re combining two weeks. Those two weeks from March 26 through April 6 proved to be a busy one for health inspectors in Ector County. There were a couple of low performers and several top performers. Meanwhile, health inspectors in Midland only had a few reports available and there were no top or low performers.

Bottoms Up Bar & Grill at 4101 E. 52nd St. in Odessa was cited for the following:

- Current health permit not posted
- Single service items being used as scoops
- Hand sink in back prep area must be replaced
- Mop sink being used as hand sink
- Some items in walk-in cooler not date marked
- Personal drinks not covered
- Cooler in kitchen needs repairs
- Some containers and bins not labeled
- Some items not covered in cooler
- Hot water not working at all hand sinks

This resulted in the health inspector deducting 19 points from Bottoms Up Bar & Grill.

Fortune Cookie Restaurant at 3744 Andrews Hwy. in Odessa was cited for the following:

- Lid not closed on grease bin in alley
- No hand sanitizer at hand sink
- No soap in men’s restroom
- Current health permit not displayed
- Cold hold cooler not cold enough
- Walk-in cooler not cold enough
- All food in walk-in cooler needed disposal
- Cooling unit needs repairs
- Using home window units for walk-in cooler
- Food prep area needed cleaning
- Some cooked foods not date marked
- Some foods not covered in walk-in cooler

This resulted in the health inspector deducting 22 points from Fortune Cookie Restaurant. However, the health inspector came back the next day and everything had been corrected.

Here’s a look at Odessa’s top performers:

- Permian Basin Hamburger Company (520 N. Grant Ave.)
- Ella’s Tropical Treats (3600 Andrews Hwy.)
