The restaurant with the most violations in Broward County is located in Deerfield Beach. The Asian Buffet and Grill on Federal Highway had 43 violations during a single inspection in 2018, according to Local 10 and was recently closed down again due to more violations.
What kind of violations? Hopefully you are not eating while you are reading this.
According to the state inspection database, the Deerfield Beach restaurant had:
“Rodent activity present as evidenced by rodent droppings found. Observed approximately: 1 fresh and 4 dry rodent droppings under prep sink at cookline. 1 fresh rodent dropping on floor at cookline. 3 fresh rodent droppings by wire shelving unit near meat grinder. 9 fresh rodent droppings by walkin freezer. 10 fresh rodent droppings behind ice machine 10 fresh rodent droppings behind racks in dry storage shelving area. 2 dry rodent droppings in sushi bar area.

Those were among the highest priority items of the dozen or so violations they received on March 25th,
The Deerfield Beach restaurant was closed down after the failed inspection on March 25, 2019 but has since re-opened.
The Asian Buffet and Grill is located at 240 S Federal Hwy, Deerfield Beach.
