There was one low performer for the week in the Permian Basin. It was the Denny's on W. Wall Street.

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - It was a relatively easy week for health inspectors in the Permian Basin for the last week of February. For the first time in several weeks, there were no low performers in Odessa for the week of January 28 through February 1. However, there was one low performer in Midland.

Denny’s at 3701 W. Wall St. in Midland was cited for the following:

  • - Not all managers had completed training
  • - Pest control needed for inside and outside restaurant
  • - Restaurant needed cleaning
  • - Kitchen, walk-in coolers/freezers needed cleaning
  • - Not all employees had food handler training
  • - Hand wash areas not labeled properly
  • - Pipes leaking in dishwashing areas
