Roach falls from ceiling onto inspector's iPad during inspection

South Florida restaurant one of many on the Dirty Dining list

TAMARAC, Fla. – State inspectors found a huge roach infestation inside Argenti Pizza in Tamarac last week.  

According to records, as the inspector was working, a roach actually fell from the ceiling onto his iPad.

A rodent issue was discovered at the Dunkin Donuts on Sheridan Street, located inside the Marathon gas station outside Oakwood Plaza.

A roach issue forced the closure of Blue Sky in Hialeah Gardens, Pad Thai in Margate and the Notre Dame restaurant in Pompano Beach.

Inspectors have been to Notre Dame restaurant 13 times this year and its the fourth time the restaurant has been shut since 2013.

Below is a list of places closed by state health inspectors and some of their violations.  All the places listed were allowed to re-open following an ordered clean up and re-inspection.
