La Granja Restaurant at 4282 Okeechobee Blvd. was temporarily closed last Monday after inspectors found employees were walking through wastewater by a back kitchen sink and standing in waste water while working at the fry station.

Waste water was moving into a walk-in cooler by employee trying to move waste water from the cooks' line. 

Inspectors also found clean glasses, cups, bowls, plates, pots and pans not stored, inverted or in a protected manner.  

A handwash sink was not accessible for employee use due to being blocked by a garbage can.

The restaurant has since re-opened.
