Mr. Sandwich III at 4626 S. Maryland Pkwy. across from the UNLV campus was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District after a re-inspection on Thursday, July 27.
The health department first visited on June 27 and issued a 36-demerit C grade. The re-inspection unearthed spoiled food, food unprotected from potential contamination, ineffective pest control measures, food held at the wrong temperature and more.
The health department closed the restaurant in 2014 and again in 2015 after inspections. Another inspection in 2014 resulted in a 40-demerit C grade, one point away from being closed.
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.
