Inspectors find local restaurants with dirty and damaged equipment during recent inspections

Morgan County

Taqueria El Palomino

1410 6th Ave SE, Decatur, AL 35601

Score: 81

Violations:

  • The health inspector noted there were no food thermometers
  • Chicken was held at improper temperatures
  • A cracked mixing bowl was found as well as a dirty ice machine

The manager said the thermometers were there, but the person in the taqueria didn't know where they were. He added the chicken was cooling down before putting it in the refrigerator so it wouldn't spoil, but the employee didn't know how to explain it to the inspector. All violations were corrected when the inspector returned for a follow-up.
