For the record, this is NOT a real roach at Captain Jim’s ear. A real one WAS found and cited at a Charlotte restaurant.
According to The Charlotte Observer, two Charlotte restaurants received a B grade during inspections from the health department. Multiple violations were found including one real live roach. He was an unwanted visitor at the Diamond Restaurant according to the paper. That place is located at 1901 Commonwealth Avenue. It was found along the mop and sink area. To get all the details to check them out from the Charlotte Observer right here.
So I am just going to play the devil’s advocate here, this restaurant is 75 years old. Sometimes in these older buildings, a roach CAN creep in. This was not an infestation, this was just one roach. One roach too many but personally I can see how this could happen. I love cleanliness, don’t get me wrong but I can totally understand how this happened. My husband and I went to one such restaurant (old) for some cajun cuisine a while back. We spotted a “live roach” sort of palmetto bug variety crawling on the wall by our table. We haven’t gone back. I just can’t get that image out of my head. I do understand it though those things get in everywhere.
