But man, does it taste like Cuba in there.

"Everything’s fresh, I like that the food is fresh," said customer Alexandria Santiago.

This week’s Restaurant Report card gives us some sizzling Churrasco steak with some fresh pastries on the side and Cafe Con Leche to die for.



Restaurants that need to step it up:

Firehouse Subs on Russell Parkway in Bonaire in Warner Robin scored a 78.

The place to wash your hands was either not supplied or not accessible, some employees lacked personal cleanliness and they didn’t have good ventilation or lighting in some areas.

And El Bronco on Watson Boulevard in Warner Robins had a decent 84, but they didn’t have their handwashing facilities set up correctly, some food wasn’t at the proper cold holding temperature and some utensils weren’t properly stored.

Emilio’s in Bonaire features tradition Cuban food cooked to perfection.

"It’s a good place, very good place, good food, great customer service," said customer Ketan Nayee.

"It’s really homey, really great quality here, it’s very clean, I actually like coming here it’s close to my house," said Santiago.

Owner Martha Uballe wants Emilio’s to be a family place.

"It brings family here, and memories, they come and say oh I haven’t tasted this in so many years," said Uballe. "I used to live in Miami and remember things, and it’s awesome to bring that to the people."

There’s pride in her food and pride in her health inspection score.

"I like people to feel comfortable when they come and eat," said Uballe. "Like I said, I feel comfortable whoever wants to come in the kitchen to see our kitchen. It’s something that we should be proud (of)."

"Because when everything is clean, you want to come back to the same place over and over because you know it’s going to be clean," said Nayee. "And then if you know the restaurant’s clean, then the food is going to be clean, and everything just falls into place right after that."

Don’t pay the airfare and hotel to fly to Cuba. You’ve got some great food right here in Middle Georgia.

Emilio’s is definitely making the grade.
