The IHOP on Target Drive in Antioch scored a 75 on a health inspection Monday afternoon. 15 pounds of food were embargoed from the restaurant after the open cooler at the prep table was not maintaining food at a safe temperature as it was ‘cooling’ at over 55 degrees. The inspector noted excessive fly activity in the kitchen and found a tree branch was inexplicably stored on the prep table. Other causes of concern included the food in the walk-in freezer was thawing instead of freezing, employees handling dirty dishes then clean plates with no handwashing, and excessive build-up and dirt throughout cook line, walls, and ceilings.
State Health Inspectors visited the 5th & Taylor restaurant in Germantown Thursday evening for nearly two hours, during which time they embargoed 20 pounds of food.

Among the violations that earned the restaurant a score of 65 on the inspection: An employee reused leftover pepper salad that wasn’t eaten by a customer and served it to another. Employees were also washing their hands using only water, no soap.
Health Inspectors found cooked chicken wings sitting at 50 degrees in a walk-in-cooler, and an employee admitted to adding wings cooked on the day of the inspection to the prior day’s pan of cooked wings and mixing them together. That was one of the many violations earning the Nashville favorite an 84 during their regular inspection Monday afternoon. Other violations included raw oysters stored in pans on the floor of the cooler, pans nested into each other without lids, raw fish stored uncovered, and the hand sink in the prep room wasn’t able to be accessed or used.

If your beer isn’t selling, perhaps you have to resort to selling the only other thing of value you have – parking spaces. As of Friday, we noticed that The Hop Stop is now charging for parking: $2 PER HOUR, OR $8/ALL NIGHT. And that isn’t going over well for the customer or the neighborly businesses who share the lot that Hop Stop owns. In fact, part of the lot is used with agreement by Mickey’s Tavern next door.
