CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Wanna be part of the team at the Mc Donald's at 4102 Port?

The team that just earned a Perfect Score from county health inspectors?

They're hiring according to manager Krystal Gluth.

"We are hiring right now for all shifts," Gluth said. "We're paying up to $10.00 depending on availability as well."

Gluth told us she's been the manager here for two years, but this is the first time the crew has earned a score of 100. She said the perfect score is meaningful to everybody involved with the restaurant.

"Yes, they do understand what it means and not just to myself but to the owners as well and to the director of operations," Gluth said. "It's an awesome feeling."

So congratulations to them and to the folks at Rock and Rollin' Ice Cream at 2033 Airline for earning their second perfect sticker from the Kitchen Cops.

And by the way, they're also hiring.

There are 11 businesses on tonight's A list with scores ranging from 99 to 93.

Lumpia House #2 at 7426 South Staples is on tonight's B list.

Inspectors found six violations and gave them a score of 87.

Inspectors found 12 violations at Ojos Locos at 5133 SPID, including a dirty ice machine and a dishwasher at the wrong sanitizer level, and gave them a score of 86.
