JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Two food trucks in Jacksonville received emergency shutdown orders from the Department of Hotels and Restaurants of the Department of Business and Professional Law this week.
Lazy Days Food Truck may have lived its name too well this week, suffering violations from employees who fail to wash their hands. Of course, it wasn’t their fault as they were unable to. The inspector found that the food truck was operating without running water.
With just two violations, Lazy Days closed on Monday October 26th but reopened on Wednesday morning with a perfect result and is back on the road.

The Creole Chamo
El Chamo Criollo, also a food truck, was forced to close on October 28 due to major cockroach activity. The restaurant report shows that a food safety inspector found 11 live cockroaches in the truck, 10 in a closet and one on the counter near the service window.
The food truck received another high priority drug storage violation, but it was removed during the inspector’s visit. A mid-level violation was also reported as some required employee training had expired.
At the return check the next day, El Chamo Criollo fared not much better. It had to be closed for more roach activity; However, the inspector returned a second time the same day and was allowed to reopen
The time for the renewal of the employee training has been extended.
