To all our loyal customers who seen our restaurant on abc news we just want to clear a few things up..yes the health department did come and do an routine inspection and yes we did have some violations, just like every restaurant everything can not be perfect and the inspectors will always find something that they think is not being done correctly that is what they are trained to do..but what was shown on abc dirty dining was 75% untrue and 100% exaggerated lets just start with "dozens of pounds of food baking under the Florida sun" our potatoes, tomatoes, and onions have for the past 14 years been stored out side our kitchen door in an roof covered storage area on shelves off of the ground sometime since our last inspection the rules have changed and now they are allowed to be stored outside but need to in an area with closed doors so we have now added doors to the shelving and problems solved.. Never ever were the stored in a field or middle of parking lot with the hot Florida sun beating on them all day..let's not forget fruits and vegetables do come from the outside anyways..also never was 65 pounds of potatoes..10 Pounds of salsa..5 pounds of chicken noodle soup...nor 7 pans of shredded potatoes thrown out those numbers are very incorrect never do we make 10 pounds of salsa at one time we do not use it that much to have that much on hand as well as our soup is made fresh daily and chicken noodle is made one pot at a time throughout the day...there were a few issues with the potatoes being out but anyone who has eaten at our restaurant knows how busy we are and what we keep on hand we use right away we are blessed to stay busy enough that nothing sits long enough to spoil or go bad..as far as improper temperatures there is no way to avoid temperatures raising a little during busy hours when cooler doors are being opened every few minutes to take things out, if anyone opens their refrigerator door over and over for a few hours the temperature will change as well...bottom line is we do the best we can to make sure our restaurant is a clean, healthy and an enjoyable place to eat for all of our customers we are not denying we had a few things to change but what was reported was blown way out of proportion and there was no need to be aired on TV, we do all we can do to the best job our restaurant owners and we believe everyone should do their jobs as well focus should be on places that are dirty with bugs and that serve un fresh food and anyone who wants to report a story should only state true and un exaggerated facts..we thank all of our customers for your loyalty over the past 14 years and we promise to continue to do our best at serving you. Thanks Kozeta and Gzim Rrgalla ABCActionNews.com @wendyryan
The severe accusations of discrimination towards the gay community are heartbreaking not only to the owners but also to our dedicated staff . In the 15 years of being established we have served and will continue to server our customers with absolute dedication and humility. We feel very lucky to be their chosen restaurant where they can come and share meals family time make memories. Most importantly we strive on making every each one of them feel welcomed, not frowned upon or judged for any reason whatsoever. Thank you for your support !!!
