A Gwinnett restaurant known for authentic Mexican food failed its health inspection last month, but has since passed its health inspection, according to a recent report.
An inspector noted dead roaches on top of the dish machine at Tacos Mexico in Buford on March 8, but the restaurant later scored a 98 on its follow-up inspection, according to a Georgia Department of Public Health inspection report.
The Buford Highway restaurant received a failing grade of 54/U on its initial health inspection in March, according to the report. The restaurant previously scored an 82 on a health inspection in December.
The inspection also noted over a dozen containers of uncovered food and shrimp thawing in a container of stagnant water, according to the report.
Management at Tacos Mexico did not immediately respond to requests for comment by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
