Food 4 Thought - 'Fumigate' warning issued for roaches at dirty diner

Palm Lounge Bar & Grill on 757 East Elizabeth Street in Brownsville served up roaches on its latest health inspection report.

The kitchen was socked with 25 demerits.

Kitchen cops discovered food handlers weren TMt hand-washing or wearing gloves when they touched foods as required.

There was also an inspector note to fumigate for roaches.

A tortilleria in Alamo was busted for many of the same violations.

When the Food Patrol went there to question the violations at El Yaqui Tortilleria on 1042 South Alamo Road, an unsettling discovery was made.
