A semi-pet peeve: Restaurant cleanliness

Posted By on July 25, 2010

Although I’m not a germ-a-phobe or a neat-nik by any stretch of the imagination, I’m often repulsed by the cleanliness of some local area restaurants. Being the one who is responsible for the health certificate for my EAA chapters annual Fly-in and Pancake Breakfast, I know how challenging it is to pass health inspections (Warren County Ohio does a good job) … so it has me wondering just how do some restaurants pass their inspections? We ate at Steak n Shake this weekend … you make the call, but this doesn’t look as if it has been cleaned for a while?


Steak n Shake, Middletown, Ohio on 7/25/2010

    That’s bad – I only hope the kitchen is better.

    Maybe this is why most of the Steak and Shakes in our area closed. I like the place, hopefully this has just been overlooked and will get cleaned soon…..

  • We took the kids to Steak and Shake for the first time this weekend. Luckily ours didn’t seem quite this unkempt. Hopefully it’s the exception…

  • I know that it was under the counter area, but seeing it doesn’t make the food as attractive as it could be … yes I know we are talking Steak n Shake. (hmm, come to think about it, my nephew works at one … not this one though)
