An Arlington Chinese restaurant failed its health inspection after receiving citations for improper food temperatures, cross-contamination and lack of hair ties by employees, according to city records.

Forty-two food establishments were inspected from May 29 to June 4. No restaurant was closed, but China King Super Buffet, located at 4515 Matlock Road, failed after scoring a 67.

With 100 being perfect, scores below 70 are considered extremely poor by the City of Arlington.

The Chinese restaurant was cited for: improper food temperatures (cold and hot holding), cross-contamination, unlabeled chemical bottles, improperly stored chemical bottles, lack of hair ties , unsanitary conditions, lack of dating of food items and the dishwasher not sanitizing, said Aimee Rockhill, the city’s health services manager.

Rockhill added that an unannounced follow-up inspection will take place next week.

In previous inspections, Tacusa, located at 2500 NE Green Oaks Blvd., and a Sonic, located at 1400 Debbie Lane, passed their follow-ups.

Here are the inspection scores and restaurant violations that Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) inspected from May 29 through June 4, 2022. TCPH inspects and scores all restaurants in Tarrant County, except those located in Fort Worth, Arlington, Euless and North Richland Hills. Scores are based on a demerit system.
