“Health Department closed it due to ROACHES & RODENTS”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Sign on the door said "closed". According to the Florida Times Union newspaper today, the Health Dept closed the restaurant due to finding over 50 live roaches, dead roaches, and rodent droppings in the kitchen/food areas.
