Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: Huey's High, plus scores

By Andy Wise - bio | email

(WMC TV) - Its name:  household.

Its burgers:  award-winning. In fact, Scorecard fans voted their burgers the best.

But it was a fastidious staff that netted Huey's downtown location the High Score of the Week.

Huey's, 77 S. Second St., earned a 95 on its Nov. 18 Memphis-Shelby County Department of Health inspection.

"I understand you (honored Huey's) for cleanliness. I'm glad to hear that!" exclaimed a reassured Janet Wike of Collerville, TN -- with a plateful of Huey's onion rings.

Assistant Manager Dax Nichols admitted he's a little "OCD."

There's always an employee pushing a broom, a mop or something else on clean-up duty. A "CLEAN ME EVERYDAY" sign admonishes the kitchen staff hustling around grill central.

"Just our thoroughness with our cleaning and stuff down here, we obviously just stay on top of it," said Nichols.

Now Huey's is on top of the Scorecard!
