There’s consistency in this month’s Rodent Report.
Inspectors found evidence of rodent residents in 14 establishments, only one fewer than last month. There’s one encore appearance from last month. And, for the second consecutive month, a restaurant named “Junie’s” made the list.

We’ll start off with those restaurants for which rodent life played a major role in inspectors shutting them down for the day.
▪ Alegria Taco, 3801 N. Andrews Ave., Oakland Park — The May 23 Taco Tuesday was aborted after the inspector found 11 fresh rodent droppings under the handwash sink in the dishware washing area; two fresh droppings behind the preparation table under the rice cooker; two more fresh droppings next to the flip top cooler on the cookline; and about 30 dried rodent droppings on the window sill of the front counter display cooler. A few other problems: “Employee failed to wash hands before changing gloves and/or putting on gloves to work with food.” And, “observed cook touch raw chicken with gloves on, change gloves and then handle clean to-go box and tortilla without washing hands in between.”
