Mexican restaurants earn matching low scores after flurry of food safety violations

By Dillon Collier - Investigative Reporter

SAN ANTONIO - Two San Antonio Mexican restaurants received 76s on their health reports last month after inspectors found a long list of violations.

Taco Taco Café, located in the 100 block of East Hildebrand, received the score after it was found storing cooked foods at room temperature.

The restaurant was also using damaged containers and utensils and a mold-like substance and food debris were found in its refrigeration, gaskets and cooking equipment.

Tacos N Salsa, located in the 11800 block of Wurzbach Road, was cited for storing raw eggs over ready to eat foods and for having multiple employees handling taco ingredients with their bare hands.

The establishment was ordered to go through a reinspection.
