Health inspectors in Jacksonville had issues with roaches, waffles and cheese this week.
The Habibi Hookah Bar & Cafe in Jacksonville Beach has been on Action News Jax's Restaurant Report before.
An inspector noted 20 live roaches and dead ones located in the restaurant. The inspector issued a stop sale on four items, including falafel and rice due to temperature issues.
The restaurant was temporarily shut down but met inspections after two follow-up inspections.
The Waffle House in Orange Park had issues with its waffle batter. In fact, an inspector had to issue a stop sale on waffle batter and hash browns, meaning employees couldn’t serve them because of temperature issues.
Hot food items like chili and gravy measured too cold, and the eggs were being cooked with no time markings. The Waffle House location met requirements during the follow-up inspection.
At The Cheese Wheel in St. Augustine, a health inspector saw one live roach. Ten cold food items were being held too warm, including cheese, ham and tuna salad while the hot chili was being held too cold.
A follow-up inspection is required for the restaurant.
