SAN ANTONIO - An East Side Mexican restaurant received a low health score last month after an employee was seen working with kitchen items after not properly washing and drying his hands.

A city inspector watched as the employee shook his hands after washing them but did not dry them. The employee then continued to work in the kitchen with “damp hands,” according to city health records.
