Rodent issues found at South Florida BBQ spot for second time this year

Roaches discovered at G.W. Sharkey’s Raw Bar and Grill

SUNRISE, Fla. – Inspectors ordered two restaurant kitchens in Broward County shut last week, according to state records.

Based on one of the inspection reports, G.W. Sharkey’s Raw Bar and Grill in Coral Springs needed a good cleaning.

An inspector noted a roach issue there and ordered a “stop sale” on buffalo chicken dip.

There was also a “mold-like substance” in the ice machine, the report stated.

Yummy’s BBQ in Sunrise, meanwhile, was ordered shut for the second time this year.

The inspector noted rodent and hand washing issues there.

Rodent issues were also discovered at Yummy’s back in January.

Below is a list of places that were ordered shut and some of their violations.

All the places mentioned were allowed to re-open following an ordered cleanup and re-inspection.
