One of our most important duties here at Short Order is to ensure our readers are made aware when restaurants are not maintaining healthy standards. Unfortunately for restaurant owners, it often takes just a little negligence for violations to occur. Fortunately for patrons, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation's safety and sanitation inspectors seldom allow violations to go unnoticed during each eatery's two to three annual inspections.
La Guira, a Mexican sports bar that has been cited three times in the past four years, was closed due to the the presence of roaches near the handwash sink and underneath the prep tables in the kitchen. Management declined to comment, but the restaurant was allowed to open the next morning after cleaning.
