Restaurant Inspections, Joe’s to Goes

Joe’s to Goes, which specializes in ribs, wings, burgers and more, fell below it previous A-B inspection marks.

An Oct. 24 food safety report for the Lawrenceville restaurant at 2585 Cruse Road, Suite B, cited new violations, such as handling ready-to-eat foods with bare hands, not labeling bottles filled with chemicals and lacking proper date markings for food items. The inspector noted that all were corrected during the inspection.

The list of infractions included one repeat violation that deals with temperature and time control for foods. The inspector noted that the facility is not using its own procedures for knowing when to discard items – such as cheese, sliced tomatoes and hamburger patties – that are placed under time control when they are removed from temperature control.

Regarding the repeated time and temperature control infraction, the inspector advised Joe’s to Goes that if it needs “help regarding this item, please call the office. If this item is marked out of compliance on the next routine inspection, then the permit will be suspended.”

The food items were discarded, and the violation was corrected on site, according to the report.

Despite its previous high-level scores, the restaurant – after receiving a 63 (U) during its Oct. 24 exam – was advised that its permit could be suspended if it receives an unsatisfactory score on its follow-up exam that’s scheduled for Nov. 3 or on its next routine visit.
