SAN ANTONIO – A North Side restaurant received a low health score and was ordered to go through a reinspection last month after live roaches were found in various areas of the kitchen, according to the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District.
Antojitos Hondurenos in the 2500 block of Blanco Road was also cited after an inflatable bed was found in a room adjacent to the kitchen. The health code requires sleeping quarters on the premises of a food establishment to be separated from rooms used for food preparation by complete partitioning and solid, self-closing doors.

The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District's scoring of food establishments is based on a 100-point demerit system.

The inspection reports, which establishments are required to post in public view, feature a number score at the top and bottom of the front page. A separate placard with the number score and a letter grade (example: 100/A) is also available upon request from the food establishment. Posting the placard is voluntary.
