  • Closed: May 20th
  • Degree: Not graded
  • Reason: Cockroach infestation. An inspector visited him in response to a complaint that someone had found a baby cockroach in his soup. The inspector found 11 live cockroaches and more than two dozen dead cockroaches in numerous areas of the restaurant. The manager said the pest control hadn’t been used since the COVID-19 pandemic, but the staff were treating the facility themselves.
  • Opened again: Visited May 25 after pest control. There were still one live and 10 dead cockroaches on the floor, but no food contact surfaces were affected. Another follow-up was planned.

Notice of Confidentiality Checks

Here are selected inspections of facilities that were not closed but had other serious problems.

Mariscos Las Brisas Restaurant, 2951 S. Vineyard Ave, Ontario, was inspected on May 25 and received a grade of 73 / C. There was a critical violation of counterfeit food: coriander in an open bag came into direct contact with a rusty shelf, some flies landed on the coriander, as well as onions. The “excessive” number of flies inside was one of the 16 minor violations; Among other things, raw bacon and cooked beef were at unsafe temperatures in a cooler that was not cold enough, cooked food was not safely cooled, and there was brown mold in the ice machine (without touching ice). This was the restaurant’s third B or C class since 2018.

Donut maker, at 393 W. Highland Ave. in San Bernardino, was inspected on May 21st and received a grade of 87 / B. Among the nine violations, none of which were rated as critical, there was mold in the ice machine (without touching ice) and both toilets were “packed with supplies and equipment.” Also, this was the restaurant’s second B Class in a row, and the poster from the last August inspection was not displayed as required; The operator said a customer took it.

Updates in the last few weeks

An inspection that was reported at last week Just bargains, at 1250 E Washington St. in Colton, actually resulted in a closure that was not originally included in the report, Health Department officials clarified. So much food was confiscated on May 20 that it was from unauthorized sources or was in a deteriorating walk-in refrigerator that there wasn’t enough room in the market’s trash can to throw it away. The inspectors returned on May 22, 24 and 25 to ensure that the confiscated food was disposed of after the daily garbage collection. The market stayed closed on May 28th as food discarding and cleanup continues, and the owner is working with the health department on food source compliance and other changes, an official said via email. This business has received B’s in its last three rated inspections and has been the subject of 27 complaints in the past five years, records show.

the KFC / Taco Bell at 9619 Sheepcreek Road in Phelan, which was closed on May 20th due to a sewage leak, was allowed to reopen on May 21st after the sewage treatment plant was pumped.

W spoon buffet, at 14689 Valley Center Drive Suite C in Victorville, which closed May 20th for a cockroach infestation, was allowed to reopen on May 21st after an exterminator was visited. The inspector saw one live and three dead cockroaches on the floor, but went back on May 25 and found no evidence of vermin.

About this list

This list will be published online on Fridays. Any updates when restaurants reopen will be added to the list for the next week.

All food establishments in the county are routinely checked to make sure they meet health regulations. A facility loses four points for every critical violation and one to three points for minor violations. An A grade (90 to 100 points) is considered “generally superior”, a B grade (80 to 89) as “generally acceptable” and a C grade (70 to 79) as “generally not acceptable “And needs a follow-up inspection. A facility will be temporarily closed if it is below 70 or has a critical violation that cannot be resolved immediately.
