Grading the restaurants

Here are the "C" ratings for Jackson metro area restaurants issued since July 30.  The Mississippi Department of Health inspects and grades each restaurant.  The department inspects the restaurant again within ten days after the "C" is issued.  The restaurant listed below all passed their follow-up inspections unless otherwise noted.

Domino's Pizza (Jackson, McDowell Road)
Captain D's (Jackson, I-55N)
Godiva Chocolatier (Ridgeland)
Cozumel (Ridgeland)
Taco Bell (Pearl)
Shuckers (Ridgeland)
Ryan's Steak House (Pearl)
Church's Fried Chicken (Jackson, Ellis Ave.)
Papito's Grill (Madison)
Nagoya (Madison)
Chateau Ridgeland

Subway (Pearl)
KJ's Jazzy BBQ (Canton)
Monte's Steak & Seafood (Byram)
Kroger Sushi (Ridgeland)
McDonald's (Jackson, N. State Street)
Mi Cabrito Messican Grill (Richland)
Hibachi Buffet & Sushi (Richland. 3 C's in a row)
St. Andrew's School (Ridgeland.  Manager hadn't yet transferred his certificate/license over from the Hilton yet.  More of a paperwork thing than anything else.  Rest of inspection was fine.)

Who teaches food safety in Ridgeland? Apparently no one since it has the highest number.

Thanks for the info KF. It's nice to know that I can login to this blog and actually get news that is useful. And, bet the farm, I will not be eating in any of these slop-houses.

Embarrassing to see a vaunted private school on this list. Not surprising to see Churches Chicken and McDonalds and most of the Chinese places. Shuckers? Say it ain't so.

A Couda is slang for Barracuda.

Beagle Bagel in Madison gets a C? That is pretty good, because I assumed they would get an F. That place is simply unclean. Nasty.

A C is the new F in these reports and has been for awhile. That's as low as it goes.

@ Hair in my Soup. Obviously reading comprehension isn't one of your strong suits. MOST of the Chinese places? Not counting Kroger Sushi (which is Japanese as are Nagoya and Hibachi but I digress), that is a far cry from MOST. Hell it is not even ANY! Considering you took Koude and made it Couda ought to disqualify you from posting period. According to Wikipedia, Koude is Dutch for 'cold.' This place is a frozen yogurt place. It's called Google, use it once in a while.

KF, which subway in Pearl? There are two of them... well... three if you include the one in the WalMart.

$16,480 annually for tuition (more next year) and they can't pass a Mississippi Department of Health inspection? LOL

Koude is a frozen yogurt place in Clinton. Ironic that a place selling bacteria cultures was cited by the Health Dept.

Sure hope none of those St. Andrew's seniors are applying to get into Cornell's hospitality management program. Might be a hard landing.

16 Grand a year??? Holy Cow. SA had 15 National Merit finalists, semifinalists, or N. Achievement awards with that freight? Madison Central had 22. Northwest Rankin had 9. Of course, the cars in the parking lot are much higher status. Our future lawyers and trust fund slackers. Have a nice lunch.

What did Clay County schools have with the $20k per year they spend on students?

Anonymous said...

SA had 15 national merit finalists? Pretty good percentage based on the number of students. Comparing them to MC with their 22 and NWR with their 9.....and again....factoring in the number of kinda laughable. Horrible comparison.

Yes on prop

PittPanther said...

12:46, you're right, it is laughable. Considering that MC and NWR have to take anyone in their district, while SA has rigorous entrance exams. SA should have more national merit finalists. The last thing SA can do is look down on the public schools.

Anonymous said...

PP is correct. St. Andrews is underachieving.

Anonymous said...

Does SA have entrance exams?....other than the exam of your bank balance and ability to pay be able to attend? I'm not sure how they are looking down on public schools by driving a "higher status" vehicle....but ok.

Congrats to all national merit semi finalists and finalists regardless of their vehicle status or school they attend.

Time to get back to these nasty restaurants many of us won't be going to any longer.

Anonymous said...

I agree they are probably underachieving when compared to other private schools with that kind of tuition.

You fail to grasp that a public school on the same road produces more NM achievers than a private school touting its academic prowess. Puhleeze. You attack public schools and greed tells you to "cut them public schools." Years back, SA advertised its number of NM scholars, until the public schools began to produce more. Look at public colleges and Rhodes- the US Military Academy, an engineering focused school, has produced 91. But Dartmouth 62, Brown 54; Cornell 30, while UVA has 50. The public school hater rich boys can pay all they want for a segregated (racially and economically) education, but the private schools in Mississippi are status symbols and for segregation. While SA has some fine kids, it's a waste of money, and they shelter the kids from the real world. Unless of course, your reality is Mummy's trust fund or a red brick gated community and Range Rovers headed DUI up to the Grove. BTW, you do know that the public schools have to take all? You want to compare Stuyvesant High to Bedford-Stuyvesant? Or sniff that Stuyvesant the public produces more than Dalton, but "Dalton has a higher percentage!" That's laughable, sweetie. Stuyvesant had 48%. 119. Dalton, at 60K a year, also had 15 (but against much higher standards). Again, Dalton, among billionaires, 15. Madison Central 22. Please stick to private school athletics and academics. You'll feel like a big fish in that small (but oh so "exclusive") pond.

PittPanther said...

Not sure how we ended up taking about private school tuition on a thread about bad restaurants, but whatever...

Can anyone explain to me why you would send your kid to JA or JP, with a five figure tuition per kid, only for said kids to end up at Ole Miss? That seems to be the worst investment of private dollars I can imagine, given than almost anyone can get into the University of Mississippi at Oxford.

SA changed their food service from Valley Services to an outfit called Flik about two years ago. It may be time to reassess that.

It seems a lot of public school grads on this thread never got as far in math to learn about ratios, percentages, fractions - SA has always had the highest percentage of NM finalists in the state (meaning adjusted for size). Also, something like 31 of the 32 MS students who have ever been awarded Presidential Scholarships have been from SA.

Let me put it in terms the knuckle-draggers and mouth breathers here can relate too - you just can't expect a 3A school to beat a 6A school - the size difference is too much to overcome.

And Dalton charges $60 while SA charges $16K? And the colleges the grads get into are similar? Sounds like quite a bargain in MS.

Wow. I eat at bb madison, Papito's, and cap'n d. Lucky I'm still alive!

I Love Siamese-Tamales said...

I live in Madison and can't seem to remember cap'n d (sic). Can 10:56 help?

If I sign up for a family-tour of St. Andrews does it include lunch in the cafeteria? What if I'm a commoner?

The beagle bagel Madison location was cited for a bulk ice machine malfunction. It has since been replaced. Please accept our apologies, and rest assured none of that ice was used for drinks or customer consumption

Ice Please, Table Four... said...

8:37; Are you certain? Apology accepted, but don't overdo it with the assurances. Nevertheless, malfunctionated ice ain't no problem.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
