HIDALGO County, Texas (ValleyCentral) – The Food Patrol headed to Hidalgo County for a double stack of “¡que asco!”
Hidalgo County Health Reports as of June 9, 2022, shows Antogetos Mexicanos Mari located at 4815 N Veterans Blvd in San Juan had 13-point violations.
The report shows that the establishment was not obligated to know how to perform its duties as a certified food manager and did not know how to handle food.
Other violations were from the lack of thermometers, a food establishment permit, proper facilities for washing hands, cleaning surfaces for food, and the need to repair the kitchen area floor.
The owner, Guillermina Byne, was present when the Food Patrol made an unannounced visit. She explained that the floor had been fixed but the restaurant was not ready for customers.
The pandemic has shut down the business. Bain sells Mexican products and clothing abroad.
Inside the establishment was full of vintage and Pine didn’t seem to mind having a dog inside.
A Hidalgo County Health Department report indicated “OK to renew permit” and “has 30 days to comply with corrections for violations” Food 4 Thought website visited September 8.
A complaint was filed with McAllen Health Director Kato Sushi at 3701 W. Expressway 83 to have a permit issued for a “gross and unhealthy” grease trap outside. Leakage of viscous grease on the floor is considered a violation of health. According to OSHA, grease traps can be dangerous if they are not well maintained.
Silvia Maria Munoz, owner of Kato Sushi, issued the violation on September 2. To correct the offense, she terminated her services with a former collection company and began working with Fatty Chem. The area was cleaned and a new grease pan was installed. Munoz was not fined.
This week’s best performance is The Munchie Stop at 3431 N FM 492 in Mission, TX. If you’re looking for some hot drinks and a sweaty treat, owner Andrea Mascuro has you covered.

Tears of joy and hard work pay off with Food Patrol.
