A restaurant near West Palm Beach is on this week's dirty dining list after sewage and waste water backed up through the floor drains.


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.
