SAN ANTONIO -

San Antonio Metro Health recently gave failing inspection scores to China Village Buffet and Rick’s Cabaret for several violations.

China Village Buffet on Loop 1604 near Culebra received 34 demerits on its latest inspection.

The health inspector noted grease in places it shouldn't be. The restaurant was told to clean grease and food debris from shelves, the floor, and the ceiling tiles in the kitchen area.

The manager said that the place had been cleaned and all demerit issues, including a round of pest control, had been taken care of.

Rick’s Cabaret on Brewster Street received 37 demerits, a failing grade.

The inspector noted mold growing on the flour mix, slime from the soda gun dripping onto ice, and flies in both bar areas.

Rick's Cabaret management said the health inspector came by at the end of a busy shift, and the staff hadn't had a chance to clean yet. He said all the problems have been corrected.
