CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Nearly a clean sweep by the Tuloso Midway School District in this week's Kitchen Cops report.

We met Olga, Irene, and Raquel at Tuloso-Midway's Primary School. They told us the school's cafeteria staff includes three other workers, so this honor goes out to them as well. Congratulations!

Also earning a score of 100 at TMISD, which, by the way, is in intersession this week, so few, if any, cafeteria staff were available, Tuloso Intermediate School on Overland. Way to go cafeteria crew!

The cafeteria crew at Tuloso Midway High School also earned a 100 from inspectors this week.

So like we said, nearly a clean sweep by the TMISD, since the middle school was not in this week's report.

There are 12 other places that earned 100's from inspectors as well, so we thank all of them for keeping it clean and safe for customers.

There are 21 places on this week's A list, meaning they earned scores between 99-90 from inspectors.

Saltgrass Steakhouse on SPID is on this week's B list with nine violations noted by inspectors, scoring an 87.

The Sonic Drive-In at 3500 Ayers also had nine violations, including live roaches, earning them a score of 86 from inspectors.

Inspectors found five violations at Padre Pizzeria on the Island, and gave then a score of 85.
