Gilbert's Mexican Restaurant, located at 8161 Latigo Drive, scored a 63 on its latest inspection conducted by the Bexar Metro Health Department. A score below 70 is considered failing. Health inspectors found several violations including:

  • An employee was seen picking egg shells off the floor, then handling ready-to-eat tortillas without changing gloves or washing hands
  • No employees were seen washing their hands during the entire inspection
  • Raw shelled eggs were placed directly on top of open containers of ready-to-eat foods
  • Cracks on the bottom of the mop sink were observed causing grey water to pool onto the floor
  • An open bin of chips was observed stored directly beside hand sink and under paper towels

Because of the number of violations, a re-inspection took place July 28th and all the items have been corrected.
