Jacksonville, Fla. - Mi Fiesta Mexicana is located on the 1100 block of Park in Orange Park. The restaurant is a popular dinner spot and popular on Facebook where some customers give the place rave reviews.
This week, the restaurant was shut down temporarily by the state health inspector. An emergency order was issued for hundreds of dead and live roaches found all over the kitchen. You can see the full report by clicking here.
We went to speak to the manager, Alex, who wouldn't let us in the kitchen and said this about the roach infestation, "It was no big deal. I don't know how many roaches we had. I don't count roaches."
