Violations included flies throughout the restaurant, an employee cutting onions with their bare hands, and dead roaches observed in food residue on containers and in the freezer.

A person at the restaurant, who identified themselves as the owner but asked not to be named, said they are currently working on the issues.

“Everything is not bad,” the owner said. “ One of the coolers is down and that was something we needed to fix. The mechanic is here now.”

The restaurant scored a 95 on its previous inspection in March 2018 and a 70 on its November 2017 inspection.

Follow-up inspections are usually done within 10 days of the original evaluation.
