Pho mimi, 635 N. Main St. Suite B-1A, Corona
- Closed: December 15th
- Grade: 65 / C, no failure
- Cause: No disinfectant. Food preparation was temporarily suspended until the employee received an approved disinfectant needed to wash dishes and wipe surfaces. There were three more critical violations. Three employees did not wash their hands, including the one who worked with the raw chicken. Raw chicken, bean sprouts, and boiled rice were exposed to unsafe temperatures. And the bowl of cilantro was contaminated with the raw chicken strainer that was stored over it in the cooking sink. I had to throw away about 40 pounds of food. It was the second-lowest score the Riverside County Department of Health gave for an entire year.
- Opened again: Later that day after someone received a disinfectant
Mobile Amira, 616 Paseo Grande, Corona (partial closure)
- Closed: December 15th
- Grade: 82 / B, failed
- Cause: No hot water. The store was allowed to sell prepackaged goods, but not sell open food or drinks until hot water was restored. Among 11 other violations, the person in charge said the dishes were washed but not disinfected, and the facility removed the wall between the food area and the garage, which the inspector said resulted in insufficient protection of the food area from parasites. The operator was ordered to immediately stop the renovation and submit the plans to the health department.
Archibald’s burgers, 28881 Newport Road, Menifi
- Closed: December 15th

- Opened again: Later this afternoon
- New variety: 94 / A, in progress December 16.

- Closed: December 14
- Grade: 81 / B, failed

About this list
This list is published online on Fridays. Any updates as the restaurants open will be listed next week.
All catering establishments in the district are regularly checked for compliance with health standards. The facility loses four points for every critical violation – and can be closed if the violation cannot be corrected immediately – and one or two points for minor violations. Grade “A” (from 90 to 100 points) is considered a passing one. Grades B (80 to 89) and C (79 or lower) are inadequate and generally require the owner to make improvements and retest.
