PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — 7 Action News Reporter Andrea Isom is back for another Restaurant Report Card, and this time, she's uncovered dirty hands, a cross contamination catastrophe and a spot with magnificent Mexican cuisine.

First she headed to Universal Coney Island. They may have anything you can imagine on the menu, but on it's last health inspection, it came with a plate of priority violations...11 in all.

Those include: Raw chicken sitting next to the grill, washcloth buckets sitting next to where tomatoes are being prepped, no thermometer available for taking temperatures, and an employee prepping food in the back going up front, putting gloves on but not washing their hands.

Most of the problems were fixed on the spot, however, the health expert has demanded this place get its food service license stat.

Next she headed to Shawarma Depot, which has only been around for a couple of months.

They had some violations on their last health inspection, like milk past the expiration date, chemical spray bottle on a prep table, and some instances of cross contamination.

The owner said the new business has worked out all the kinks.

Finally, Andrea went to El Toro, which got an A on their last inspect. A perfect 10 out of 10.
