Restaurant Report: Only one business with demerits


SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Smith County health inspectors could only find one restaurant that made them frown this time around.

El Mejicano Restaurant
678 WSW Loop 323

Their permit was suspended for repeat violations, but later reinstated.

Inspectors found too many roaches in the kitchen. Chicken and beef fajitas, wraps, catfish, burritos and other foods were either improperly cooled or out of temperature. Handwashing rules were not being followed. Inspectors say there were not enough handsinks. Date-marks were missing on cooked, leftover foods. Drinking cups were still greasy after a trip through the dish machine.

Total demerits? 34
