SAN ANTONIOUPDATE: Metropolitan Health has corrected a spelling error in its initial report, so the headline and article have been edited to indicate food was covered by cloth, not clothes

A taqueria in far southeast San Antonio was cited last month after a city health inspector found cloth being used to cover tortillas.

Taqueria Reyes, located in the 10500 block of U.S. 181 South, received a score of 81 and was also written up for having missing thermometers in its freezers.

The walk-in refrigerator was having difficulty staying at 45 degrees and was in need of servicing, the health report states.
