Behind the Kitchen Door: Sanitary Inspector Discovers Filthy Conditions at Strip Club Restaurant

SAN ANTONIO “There was more than just dirty dancing at the San Antonio strip club.

The health inspector said the restaurant inside the facility was dirty and needed a general cleaning. Violations were identified during an audit in early December.

Here’s what KSAT Investigates reporter Tim Gerber found behind the kitchen door.

Italian Grill D’Angelo

D’Angelo’s Italian Grill, located inside the Capisce Gentleman’s Club at 4200 Sun Gate Street, danced around the stage and scored 81 on the latest health check.

The inspector noted that the entire establishment needs a general general cleaning. The kitchen had dirty floors and walls, the kitchen equipment was also contaminated with debris, and the exhaust system filters were covered in grease.

That’s not all – dishes and food containers that were kept as clean were clogged with trash, there were mosquitoes in the bar, and there was a black coating inside the ice maker.

Five violations were eliminated during the audit, but the business also required a valid permit.

Mexican restaurant Pancho

Mexican restaurant Pancho’s in the 1000 quarter of Old Highway 90 scored 83 in a December review.

The inspector found a bucket of chopped potatoes stored on the ground under a sink where splash contamination could have occurred.

Food stored in the fridge was found uncovered under dirty food leftovers on the racks, dishes were being washed but there was no disinfectant in the water, the freezer was not cold enough, the drawer fridge shelves were littered with food debris and caked on the sides of the grill and other kitchen equipment .

Employee medication and cologne were also found in the kitchen near the food preparation area. A re-inspection was ordered and they were told to renew the expired food license.

Peak Nick Foods

Pik Nik Foods, located in the 1200 block of South General McMullen, improved on its previous score of 72 points.

When a health inspector visited her in late November, she gave the store an 83.

They had to throw all food into a cold store that had mold on it, a red and black substance was growing inside the ice maker, there was no valid food manager, and their food license was not renewed.

Beer cans, pickles and other food items were contaminated due to missing ceiling tiles.

Deep fryers and grills were covered in grease and food debris, as were the kitchen floors.

They also needed to remove the duct tape from all the freezers and repair the gaskets. A re-inspection was required.
