Teriyaki Boy Healthy Grill at 4441 E. Bonanza Road was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a routine inspection on Thursday, July 20.

Inspectors discovered an imminent hazard, lack of adequate refrigeration, which led to the shutdown. The restaurant was also cited for potentially hazardous foods held at the wrong temperature, an inadequate number of hand sinks and more. This is the first time the restaurant was closed by the health department since inspections started in 2013.

The restaurant inside the pan-Asian grocery store 168 Market at 3459 S. Jones Blvd. was shut down by the health department after a routine inspection on Wednesday, July 19. A pest infestation, an imminent health hazard, caused the shutdown.

Inspectors also found food unprotected from potential contamination, waste water improperly disposed and more.

The restaurant was last closed by the health department in 2009 and earned two other C grades since.

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.
