Playas de Cancun, the Mexican restaurant at 3513 E. Charleston Blvd., was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Thursday, Sept. 15.
An imminent health hazard, no potable water, caused the immediate shutdown of the restaurant.
SNHD inspectors also found 26 demerits, including no hot and cold water from an approved source, staff not properly washing their hands, food unprotected from potential contamination, waste water not disposed of properly and more.
The health department recorded no previous inspections of the restaurant.
The Palace Station hot dog cart at 2411 W. Sahara Ave. was shut down by the health department after a routine inspection on Thursday, Sept. 15.
Again, an imminent health hazard, no potable water, caused the immediate shutdown of the restaurant.
The food cart also didn’t display its grade card, kitchenware wasn’t properly washed and the cart had no hot and cold running water.
The past four inspections resulted in A grades.
The health district conducts unannounced inspections at least once a year. Inspections are posted online about five days after the inspection. 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.
