A Brownsville snow cone stand is ordered to fumigate after roaches turn up during an inspection report.

The small stand is no stranger to dirty dining.
It TMs been featured two other times as a low performer on Food 4 Thought.
Kitchen cops recently found improper hygiene and labeling practices, no hot water or towels for proper sanitation and a dirty freezer in addition to the roaches.
In McAllen, Gorditas Dona Tota on 2812 Nolana scored 22 demerits.
Management talked to the Food Patrol about the multiple violations which included a cross contamination of raw meat next to prepared foods.
Food Patrol: You do know people can get sick from that, right?
Manager: Yea, I know.
The restaurant has since taken steps to correct the problems.
