Plumbing woes, hole in the wall lead to reinspection at West Side restaurant

A Mexican restaurant on the city’s West Side was ordered to be reinspected last month after health officials noted several plumbing issues.

El Maguey Mexican Grill, located in the 6700 block of Hwy. 90 West, received a score of 77 after plumbing from a hand sink was seen being drained directly onto the ground outside.

A three-compartment sink inside the establishment could not reach the proper heated temperature and it had a leak in its back room, health records show.

The restaurant was also written up for having holes above a sink in need of repair.
