The city of Marshall has said it closed the Sonic Drive-In on Grand Avenue on Friday because of multiple health code violations, ranging from rodent sightings to “sanitary concerns” to incorrect food storage.
The city used its Facebook page to reveal its reasons for closing down the fast-food restaurant at 901 E. Grand Ave./U.S. 80.
“In all, the establishment received seven violations,” Cory Smith, communications coordinator for the city, posted shortly before noon Wednesday.
Smith said the city health inspector conducted a probe after receiving a tip.
He said once the owner rectifies the violations and passes reinspection, the restaurant will be allowed to reopen.
Orkin Pest Control vans were parked at the restaurant Tuesday.
