      Roaches turn up during restaurant's inspection and pest control

      Denny TMs on 4703 South Expressway 83 in Harlingen called a roach discovery at their restaurant both a curse and a blessing. That TMs because pest control was already in the building performing monthly maintenance when a health inspector found the insect contamination by the register area. I apologize to the guests and to the community that we had that on that day, Mario Mata, assistant manager said. Mario told the Food Patrol that his staff pride themselves on a clean restaurant for guests. Denny TMs scored 6 demerits. It was still a concern, Mario added. But it was addressed immediately. El Grano de Oro on 103 East FM 1925 near Edinburg is the dirtiest this week. The meat market and tortilleria scored 25 demerits. It TMs not the first time the Food Patrol visited that particular kitchen. Click on the video link to see what TMs not on the menu in this week TMs Food 4 Thought.
