South Florida TGI Friday’s, Carrabba’s, Subway ordered shut by inspectors

Three dead rodents were found in Belkuhy's Place Cafeteria in Opa-locka last week.

Records show that an inspector also found 200 rodent droppings in the restaurant.

La Fontana Pizzeria in Coral Springs was shut for six days.

Records show inspectors went back several times to reinspect, but roach issues continued.

La Fontana was finally allowed to reopen on April 13.

Meanwhile, raw sewage issues forced the closure of Carrabba's Italian Grill in Miami Beach.

Inspectors were at the TGI Friday's in Pembroke Pines based on a complaint.

Roaches were found in several places throughout the kitchen.

Below is list of places and some of their violations.

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