Restaurant Report Card: Jerry Bob’s location enduring rough year

KOLD Restaurant Report Card, July 19

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - In this edition of Restaurant Report Card, we're taking a closer look at a restaurant that's had a rough year, according to the health department.

We're talking about the Jerry Bob's near Cortaro and Thornydale roads.

The place has gotten the attention of health inspectors - not once, but twice this year.

According to inspectors, the big problem here is food temperature control.

Inspectors gave the restaurant a "needs improvement" last week, pointing to cold holding issues and a broken walk-in cooler.
