I have a few friends whom are waiters. Some tell me I’d never eat in most restaurants if I saw what goes on in the kitchen.

I saw on the news where Hamburger Mary’s in Ybor City was reported for rodent infestation. Perhaps he was just a disgruntled employee? Don’t know, but I've eaten there several times and now feel a little disgusted that I did.

@jcboy,
Disgruntled? Perhaps or perhaps there is reason to be concerned.

TAMPA - A popular restaurant in Ybor City was one of two bay area eateries to be shut down last week. There were eight Florida restaurants total closed by the Division of Hotels and Restaurants for the week ending March 10, 2012, because of roach or rodent activity, unlicensed activity or no hand washing.

Hamburger Mary's Bar and Grille at 1800 E. 8th Avenue Unit E-202 in Tampa was shut down because of rodent activity. State inspectors found over 75 rodent droppings throughout the kitchen including near the server area, mini-bar area, dish machine, box soda cage, storage room, ice machine, and hostess stand.

The state also issued Hamburger Mary's a stop sale order on March 6, 2012 because 24 gallons of chili was not properly cooled from 135 degrees to 41 degrees in the correct time-frame. All of that chili had to be thrown out.

Hamburger Mary's had 40 critical violations over the last 14 months and among those were food stored on the floor, potentially hazardous food thawing in standing water, and raw animal food stored over cooked food.

Another local restaurant to be shut down by the state this last week included Tilli's Pizzeria and Cafe at 13037 Cortez Blvd in Brooksville.

Tilli's was disciplined for operating without a current Florida Restaurant License on February 6, 2012. Their license had expired and it's not the first time the eatery was cited for that same violation.

According to the state's records, Tilli's was operating without a license during most of 2011 when inspectors showed up in November, July, and March of that year.

Other critical violations tallied up inside this pizza place over the last year included food not date marked, no certified food manager on duty, and sausage and cheese at an improper temperature.

@Sturgis,
Yeah I was thinking the same thing after reading that.

That video brought back some memories, some not good memories but it was fun to watch!

@msolga,
It was our first time at this new place. The sushi was good but they brought my soup to the table cold, I wasn’t thrilled about that.

Many Restaurants are clean but if you do inside it will be worse

"According to Albuquerque's KOAT-TV, Garcia, an employee at an area Sunflower Market, served a yogurt sample to a female customer. After taking a spoonful, the woman noticed a flavor not yet offered by yogurt companies: semen. And she was right.

Albuquerque police have now confirmed that semen was found in the sample. Because DNA tests have not yet come back, they haven't specifically charged Garcia with putting it there. But conveniently enough, KOTA reports, he had "an outstanding warrant for criminal sexual contact of a minor, kidnapping and bribery."

As a result, Garcia was taken into custody, thereby preventing him from providing any more sperm swirlies to the market's customers."

@contrex,
That was a few years ago now. That was one of the best, most well run markets I've ever been in and I've been in some good ones. That one employee was a disaster for them. New ownership/name of the place now.

They should have checked for warrants - does every employer do that? Anyway, it was obvious to us who know the place that that was an outlier situation.

@jcboy,
Even if a restaurants interior is good. A look at the kitchen by yourself will be good idea.

There is an IOS app that allows you to see the results of the latest health department inspection for restaurants in Florida. I don't know if it's available for Android or for other states.

This restaurant is just a dung heap.

@jcboy,
Hygiene should be maintained by a restaurant of any level. It is one of the basic reliable factors of a restaurant regarding a customer's perspective.
