"To be honest with you, it's sickening, OK," restaurant owner Sherrie Gentry told WPLG. "It really is."
Cleaning crews and pest control were at the restaurant every day after the closure.
"We spent 24 hours since that day (cleaning the restaurant," Manny Varias, kitchen manager for 10 years, told WPLG. "Power-washed everything, looked in every corner with a flashlight."
The restaurant met inspection standards and was allowed to reopen two days later, according to state records.
