Tacos El Compita at 6118 W. Charleston Blvd. came within two points of being shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Wednesday, April 29.
SNHD inspectors found that the staff wasn’t properly washing their hands and food was not protected from potential contamination as well as ineffective pest control measures, grade cards not posted and more during the 39-demerit inspection.
Inspections since 1998 show a pattern of eight C grades, including an epidemiological investigation that resulted in 38 demerits in 2002.
The Southern Nevada Health District routinely shuts down restaurants that receive more than 40 demerits. Restaurants have the option of requesting a re-inspection before the next scheduled inspection.
