Senor Burrito Cited In Boca Raton By Health Inspector

Boca Raton Florida News Palm Beach County

Salsa Too Warm To Serve…Chicken, Cheese Not Kept At Correct Temp…



BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Popular restaurant Senor Burrito in East Boca Raton was unpopular with a health inspector from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation during an unannounced look around on October 28th.

The inspection led to a warning for serious food issues. The restaurant, however, was never told to close.

From the inspection report, using language that is not editing:

“High Priority – Time/temperature control for safety food cold held at greater than 41 degrees Fahrenheit. #1: salsa (46-50°F – Cold Holding) Observed at wait station, a container of salsa in an ice bath with ice not reaching up the sides of the container, thus not allowing the top part of the salsa container to reach below 41°F. Operator added more ice. #2: raw beef (51°F – Cold Holding); raw chicken (52°F – Cold Holding); cut tomatoes (51°F – Cold Holding); cotija cheese (53°F – Cold Holding) Observed in flip top/ reach-in cooler next to entrance to kitchen. Ambient temperature of cooler is 55°F. Operator states less than 3.5 hours. Operator added ice to items. **Corrective Action Taken** **Warning**”

“Intermediate – Handwash sink used for purposes other than handwashing. Observed a container of ice being stored in the hand-wash sink near server station. Operator removed. **Corrected On-Site** **Warning**”

“Intermediate – Spray bottle containing glass cleaner not labeled. Operator labeled. **Corrected On-Site** **Warning**”

The restaurant was ordered to undergo a second inspection which occurred on October 29th. Employees apparently received the message being sent by DBPR. No violations were observed.
