SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say three businesses failed a routine Wicomico County Alcohol Task Force compliance check conducted on Wednesday.

Named "Operation Spot Check," the operations involved the use of Maryland State Police cadets for sales to underage persons at various licensed establishments throughout the county.

John Groncki, chief liquor license inspector for the Wicomico Board of [Liquor] License Commissioners, said that of the 23 establishments that were checked, the three listed below failed:

  • Chevron Food Mart, 1111 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Outback Steak House, 8245 A Dickerson Lane, Salisbury 
  • Lucky Star, 208 N. Fruitland Blvd., Fruitland

The following 20 locations passed, resulting in an 87 percent pass rate:

  • Cheer's, 1324 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Back Street Grill, 401 Snow Hill Road, Salisbury
  • Sobo's Beerstro, 1015 Eastern Shore Drive, Salisbury
  • Thirsty's, 444 Snow Hill Road, Salisbury
  • Specific Gravity, 105 E. College Ave., Salisbury
  • Rosita's Taqueria Y Restaurant, 717 Roland Ave., Salisbury
  • Plaza Tapatia, 1045 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Hunan Palace, 1600 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Thirsty's South, 1053 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Quick Food Mart, 900 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • T's Market, 400 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Fratelli's Restaurant, 1309 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Hunan Palace II, 2505 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Plaza Tapatia, 2715 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Applebee's Neighborhood Bar & Grill, 703 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Royal Farms Store, 1401 S. Division St., Fruitland
  • Chili's Grill & Bar, 2750 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • The Fountain's, 1800 Sweet Bay Drive, Salisbury
  • Center City Exxon, 500 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Eagle Express Mart, 1312 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury

Groncki said the licensees of the establishments that failed the compliance checks will be required to appear before the Board of [Liquor] License Commissioners for a show cause hearing whereupon they could face fines or suspensions of their liquor licenses, or both. The clerks who sold the alcohol to the cadet will be charged criminally by the officers of the Task Force, according to Groncki.

The task force is comprised of the Board of [Liquor] License Commissioners, Maryland State Police, the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, the Salisbury and Fruitland police departments, as well as the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office.
