Inspections non-closure of the note
Below are selected inspections at facilities that were not closed but had other significant issues.
Citrus Donut, at 16115 Foothill Blvd. At Fontana, I requested a revaluation after receiving the 81/B on June 3. This time, on July 6, I got an 87/b. There was one serious violation, being food at unsafe temperatures in two refrigerators that weren’t cold. Among the other five violations, staff were not properly keeping track of how long the ham and cheese croissants, cream cheese cakes, or boba cooked at room temperature were left; There was some brown mud on the nozzles of the cappuccino machine.
Chili House, at 12732 Foothill Blvd. Wing 102nd in Rancho Cucamonga, was checked on July 1 and had a score of 76/C with two serious violations. Multiple food containers were at unsafe temperatures, including items in the refrigerator that were 75 degrees inside. Also, a bowl of pasta was stored under a sink for hand washing, and sewage was dripping into the bowl. Among the other 12 infractions, employees did not know the correct and cold temperatures or washing procedures; Raw chicken, raw beef and raw pork were stored in the same container; food was stored in the employee’s toilet; There was mold in the ice machine. A follow-up on July 5 found that the freezer was running and food had been removed from the restroom.
Servandos Taco Shop, at 977 N. Some of the tacos, toppings, and rice were at unsafe temperatures in the refrigerator that weren’t cold. There were also two issues with food contact surfaces: the dishes were washed without hot water and there was mold in the ice maker (not touching the ice). Among the other eight infractions, the manager did not know how to safely cool food or the steps for washing dishes, and there were flies in the kitchen.
Chiki Chiki Wings & Sports, at 16312 Arrow Blvd. Suite CE at Fontana, underwent a mandatory reassessment examination on July 1 after receiving a score of 70/C on June 3. This time I got an 84/B with one serious violation. The nachos and raw chicken were at unsafe temperatures. Among the other nine irregularities, employees did not know the appropriate cooling and reheating temperatures, and several containers of oil were stored directly on the floor. This was the restaurant’s third B or C grade since 2020.
simis second market, in 1413 S. Euclid Ave. In Ontario, on June 30 in response to a complaint that someone was living in the storage area (which health law does not allow) and that there were many unsanitary conditions, including mosquitoes. The manager said the person no longer lived there, there were fewer mosquitoes than before and other issues were dealt with. The market received a score of 82/B with one serious violation. In addition to seeing about 50 mosquitoes, the inspector found four dead cockroaches and several rodent droppings. Among the other nine violations, there were slime and mold residue on the soda nozzles, mold in the ice maker (not touching ice), litter and food on the floors, and an inflatable mattress and sofa still in the food storage area. Follow-up is planned to ensure that the insect and rodent problems are resolved.
Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ, at 4611 Chino Hills Parkway in Chino Hills, was checked June 29 after the Department of Health received a report that someone had tested positive for salmonella after eating from this restaurant as well as several others in Orange County. The restaurant received a score of 83/b with seven violations, two of which were critical: Some cooked chicken and cut-up produce were not kept at safe temperatures, and the employee did not wash his hands. This was the restaurant’s second B in two years.

Del Rosa Ave. In San Bernardino, he received a follow-up examination on July 5 after a complaint investigation on June 29 found rodent droppings throughout the facility.

About this listing
This list is published online on Friday. Any updates as restaurants reopen will be included in next week’s menu.
All county dining facilities are routinely checked to ensure they meet health codes. The facility loses four points for each serious violation and one to three points for minor violations. A grade A (90 to 100 points) is considered ‘generally superior’, a grade B (80 to 89) ‘generally acceptable’ and a grade C (70 to 79) ‘generally unacceptable’ and requires a follow-up examination. A facility will be temporarily closed if it scores less than 70 or has a serious violation that cannot be immediately corrected.
