A DeKalb County Mexican restaurant passed a re-inspection recently after failing two, though the issues that remain including a roach problem.
Las Colinas, located at 6120 Covington Highway, Lithonia, received an 81 on July 20, according to the inspector’s report. The restaurant, popular for its guacamole and margaritas, had failed with a 47 on July 19 and with a 54 July 11.
Manager Ernesto Perez told Channel 2 Action News after the first failure that he had talked to his pest control person and is seeking training for all employees.
The new report lists a variety of issues with food storage observed on July 20, as well as standing mop water in the kitchen tiles and food debris in a cooler.
The report said live roaches were seen “in the kitchen, bar, wait station and bathroom areas of the facility.”
