Restaurant Report: ‘It’s false:’ Local Dunkin’ gets dunked on in state inspection

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Action News Jax’s Ben Becker tells you every week about your favorite places to eat in the Original Restaurant Report.


Becker paid a visit to Dunkin’ on Sunbeam Road near San Jose Boulevard and was greeted at the door.

State inspectors found 17 live and dead roaches inside an ice machine, too many egg sacks inside an ice machine and a mold-like slim on a shelf. It was temporarily closed.

Becker was quick to ask questions.

Becker: “Is it okay to eat here? Yeah, it’s kind of disgusting.”

Employee: “It’s false! It’s false.”

Becker: “The state was false? Yeah, not true? They lied?”

Employee: “Yeah, whoever that is.”

Becker: “The State of Florida?”

Employee: “Well, I don’t know.”
