I don't understand why the employees do not wear "gloves" when preparing your food. I watched them fix my food this week, and noticed that they do not wear hair nets, nor do they wear gloves. I couldn't eat my food, thinking about them not wearing gloves when fixing the food order. And, I do not go into Taco Delite that much, for that very reason. Most places when working around food, they make their employees put on "gloves", and wear hair nets. Has anyone else thought about this?

Gloves do not necessarily mean sanitary. They just give patrons a false sense of security. A person can scratch their butt with gloves on too. There is hand sanitizer in two different areas on the food line at Taco Delite (I've seen them use them.) I would much prefer to see them use the hand sanitizer than to wear the gloves. I bet it's easier to sanitize your hands in between tasks than it is to take gloves on and off.

Subway employees wear gloves but they will also put things down that trash bin on the counter, scratch and touch other things before they finish making the sandwich. So gloves aren't always the answer. I don't know if the cooks at most restaurants wear them do you? It is a crap shoot, literally.

No.

I prefer to have employee in view of fixing my food rather than one behind swinging doors.
BTW Taco Delight has the best Dr. Pepper & crushed iced to boot. The employees are pleasant and I've never had a bad experiece. I've been going since they opened!

If you couldn't eat your food why say "And, I do not go into Taco Delite *that much*, for that very reason".

If you noticed they don't wear gloves then you should have noticed that the people who handle money are not on the food line. They wash their hands and then that's good. Also the hats take place of the hair nets. A lot of places have the employees where hats instead of nets.

Good point, but I would prefer to see them wear gloves which they change at regular intervals. Or apply sanitizer to the gloves. I am much less likely to ingest skin cells from their hands, if they use gloves. Also, a lot of people have cuts, scratches, and scrapes on their hands.

yeah some fast food employees act like the gloves are intended to protect their HANDS from touching the food, instead of PROTECTING the customer from the germs that might be on their hands. Reality is that bacteria and other funk thrives in the moist warm environment of those plastic gloves and that your food is probably a LOT safer and cleaner if the employees wash their hands properly with warm water and soap and use hand sanitizer frequently. In the case of Taco Delite the preservatives and chemicals in the pseudo-food probably prevent any contamination of pathogenic organisms anyway, so no worries! yuk.

Your face could be fixated on the side mirror on your car looking at own reflection of attitude while “*there* rude and stuck up”!

Eat habeneros and chili peppers ...boost your immune system.Go drink water straight out of a lake or pool.see how many microorganisms get into your system,unfortunately some may be pathogenic,THAT will get you sick.just saying.....if your immune system is in top order you are unlikely to get sick,,,I do believe in sanitary practices when working food service,but if it were that bad here in Paris ,,alot of people would be sick!

gloves, hats, and hand sanitizers do not make a difference. its the person making your food. i went to braums once and was standing in the food line. young kid comes in to talk to his buddy working the burger line. the guy on the line with food in hand steps up to the cash register to talk to his friend, then sticks his hand in his pocket to pull out some money. turns to back to the line and finishes making the burger!!!
the kids making our food do not care. its just a job to them. i know its not going to kill me to eat that burger but i dont need to see that crap going on. he thinks its alright because he is not the one going to eat it!

Yeah but did you notice the one that takes your money turns around and fingers your UNWRAPPED straw and puts in in your cup just moments before you stick it in your mouth? Taco Delite, get some wrapped straws to give out with your drinks!!

Did you know that E Coli and staph are most prevalent on your grocery shopping cart! Wiping it off with the sanitary cloths does not help at all.
Yes

True. And tests have shown one of the worst places on the shopping cart is the small area by the push handle. A lot of parents put their diapered children there. There is a lot of bacteria in that area from where the small child's butt has been. I don't ever put any food items (or mush else for that matter) in that area.
