Restaurant Report Card: Roaches, rodents found in local kitchens

HOUSTON – Cockroaches, Houston is famous for them, big ones, but they are dirty and carry bacteria and they are the last thing you want to see in any restaurant.

But at The Red Pier Asian Bistro and Bar, located at 2704 Milam Street, restaurant inspectors discovered what they termed a roach infestation.

They noted the presence of live roaches, dead roaches and rodents.

They found a live roach on the food prep table and found dead roaches on the floors and shelves throughout the food preparation area.

They report finding roaches in a container above the sink, roaches near the sink and roaches on the floor near the freezer.

Moving on we find ourselves at Marco’s Pizza on Ella Boulevard where health inspectors noted a problem with rodents.

They found rodent droppings on the floor in the back of the building near the exit door.
