A state health inspector visited El Mojito Mexican Restaurant on Donelson Pike Wednesday and found a restaurant without any managerial control with multiple priority violations, putting the public at risk. The inspector’s final report, which gave the restaurant a score of 65, notes there is no hand sink in the bar area, milk in the prep cooler was days expired and smells spoiled, and the floor under the drink stand was “extremely dirty,” according to the inspector. Additionally, the restaurant was noted to have a dead mouse found under a shelf near their fryer and mouse droppings on the counter next to the prep cooler.
The Tennessee Department of Health conducted a routine inspection of Taqueria El Millon #3 at 5325 Mt. View Road in Antioch on Thursday. Among the violations that earned the restaurant a score of 65 on the inspection: An employee reused leftover pepper salad that wasn’t eaten by a customer and served it to another. Employees were also washing their hands using only water, no soap.
