SAN ANTONIO – An ice house on the city’s Northwest Side was ordered to go through a reinspection late last month after a health official found gnats below its sinks and around its drains.

Brews Brothers Ice House in the 7400 block of Leslie Road was told to intensify its pest control efforts after scoring an 80.

The establishment was also cited for having pooled water on the floor of the men’s restroom.

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.
