In this week’s Restaurant Report Card, a quick redemption for a Pueblo gas and grub that failed last week, and they invited FOX21 to bring a camera inside the kitchen to show everything checks out.
We can all relax, because Maks is back in good standing with the health department.
After an April 26 inspection revealed 10 violations, a follow-up inspection on May 16 showed zero violations.
“Things were not that bad,” owner Amit Khanna said. “That’s why I wanted to talk to you and invite you to come and see it.”
Khanna tells FOX21 there was an issue with the walk-in cooler, and they were unaware of some new regulations that went into effect at the beginning of this year, but they now have it all taken care of.
Located on Lake Avenue near Iowa Avenue, Maks Gas and Mindful Eats has been open for more than four years, with the goal of changing the way we eat at convenience stores.
“The idea was a one-stop-shop where you can get gas, you can buy groceries, or you can get food, like homemade food fresh,” Khanna said.
Maks serves burritos, tacos, bowls, and much more, but the stars of the show are the breakfast burritos.
“Breakfast burritos are really popular,” Khanna said. “The bacon breakfast burrito is one of my most popular items.”
Khanna said he and the ladies working hard behind the counter eat there every day.
“I know there’s a lot of good places to get good food, but come and try us,” he said. “It’s my promise this food served here is clean, made fresh from scratch, and we take pride in what we do.”
This is why Restaurant Report Card is giving Maks a second chance.
