Cockroaches, no hot water: Restaurant closures in Riverside County, Jan. 31-Feb. 7

Here are the restaurants and other food facilities closed by health inspectors in Riverside County between Jan. 31 and Feb. 7, 2019, according to the county’s Department of Environmental Health. If no reopening date is mentioned, the department had not listed that facility as reopened as of this publication.
Pool snack bar at Lawrence Welk’s Desert Oasis , 34567 Cathedral Canyon Drive, Cathedral City

Closure date: Feb. 6
Grade: 81/B, failing
Reason for closure: Cockroach infestation . The inspector saw some roach egg casings on the floor near the ice machine, and when a pesticide (approved for use in restaurants) was sprayed into a hole in a nearby wall, several live roaches crawled out. There was one other critical violation, for food not being kept cold enough. Two dozen eggs that had been sitting out since the day before were thrown out, as were some cut tomatoes and salsa inside a cold holding unit that was impounded for not staying cold enough. In a lesser violation, there was mold inside the ice machine.

About this list
The county routinely inspects and grades all facilities that handle open, non-prepackaged food. An A grade (90 to 100 points) is passing. Grades of B (80-89 points) and C (79 or below) are failing and typically require the proprietor to make improvements and be re-inspected. A facility may be closed temporarily because of a major violation that can’t immediately be fixed.
This list is published online on Fridays. Any updates as restaurants are reopened will be included in next week’s list.
