EL Mojito Mexican restaurant fails health inspection with dead mouse in kitchen

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.
