Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: Rockn' Roundup O' Scores!

MEMPHIS (WMC TV) - Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday.

I'll come back to your Southeast Memphis location when it improves its health score.

Ruby Tuesday, 7535 Winchester Rd., earned a 73 on its May 12 inspection, including a food permit suspension notice:

"no hot water at handsink"

"toxic item not labeled" on the shelf...

"turkey, potato, chicken breast (at unsafe food temps)"

Manager Dave Moore is an avowed fan of the Scorecard. That explained why he was so gracious to us when we called, despite being embarrassed about his restaurant's performance.

"We basically had two different refrigerators that weren't cooling at the proper temperatures," Moore said. "One of them had a bad compressor. Of course, they've all been repaired.

"Any food that was under temperature, we tossed. We're hoping to earn points back enough to upgrade to an 88."

The Southeast Memphis Ruby Tuesday's awaiting its follow-up inspection.
