There weren't only LOTS of rats, they were crawling on the seats, tables where people eat, jumping from table to table....and crawling on the counters where food is prepared!
After my experience eating half a cockroach in my Wendy's burger years ago, and now this whole thing with Taco Bell being overrun by rats....
I'm going to be doing even more home cooking.

Makes you wonder how many restaurants and fast food places in YOUR town or city have rat infestations too....
They are pets . They are there to keep the cats out . Ever have a cat hair in your taco? Disgusting! I guarantee you that once the place gets cleaned up, the owner will install a pull down security shield so nobody can look into the store when it's not open. I'm afraid it's all too common in many NYC eateries and probably all over the country!

yeah, cat tacos are revolting !
Today I read that they'd just passed an inspection the day before! I've only eaten once at a KFC in the last 25 years...last June and I nearly barfed. It was disgusting, overly salty, and truly greasy nasty stuff. I couldn't believe it was so bad.
Taco Bell though I love... ...and now I'll never look at a Taco Supreme the same way again

I wonder how the Chinese restaurants in New York City deal with the rat problem...I can't say for sure...but I bet that rat tastes kinda like chicken! Brings new meaning to "The Year of the Rat".

I haven't been able to go back to Taco Bell since the lettuce/e coli. thing. This reinforces it... though, I agree - I loved Taco Bell.

I wonder how long till they go out of business?

This is a LOT of bad publicity.

Just heard on the news this morning that Johns Pizzeria (Bleecker Street) which is arguably the best pizzeria in New York and has been in business for nearly 80 years was forced to closed by NYC health inspectors gone wild. Seems like the sink is too far away from where the pizza maker prepares pizza . I guess the city got caught with it's pants down with the Taco Bell fiasco so now all will suffer. I think it will be a typical case of government overeaction now, so the city can say "you see were doing our job". I'm sure we'll read many more stories like this in the weeks ahead!

It's funny because most people do not know exactly what goes into a health rating score. I know because my father owned restaurants. He once got an 82. Which is not good. They advertise it on the news and all. The missing points were for a broom misplaced, a loose hinge and "improper" labeling. So sometimes the health dept stepping in or giving a low score does not always mean that eatery is doing a bad job with the food.
