SAN ANTONIO – A taco place on the Southwest Side was ordered to go through a re-inspection last month after a “green fuzzy build up” on a towel had transferred to a restaurant cutting board.

Rocky’s Taco House, located in the 1300 block of Cupples Road, received a score of 79 and was also cited for having kitchen equipment with food debris and grease on it.

The establishment received an additional write up for not having a sufficient cooling technique for food items, city health records show.
