A.J. Spurs in Templeton reportedly closed Monday after a customer complained of seeing cockroaches inside the restaurant.

San Luis Obispo County Environmental Health Services told local TV station KSBY that an inspection of the restaurant found evidence of all stages of cockroach development.

Health officials reportedly said older buildings like A.J. Spurs’ can attract vermin and have problems with sanitation. County environmental health supervisor Laurie Salo could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday evening.

The restaurant will remain closed until health officials return for another inspection to determine when the restaurant can reopen, according to KSBY. However, an employee who answered the phone at the A.J. Spurs in Grover Beach said the Templeton location was expected to reopen Wednesday night.

A call to A.J. Spurs in Templeton was not answered Tuesday.

The closure of A.J. Spurs happened the same day that a Nipomo Carl’s Jr. temporary closed after a customer took a photo of a mouse scurrying across a counter. San Luis Obispo County health officials said Tuesday no evidence of a rodent infestation was found at the fast-food restaurant, which has reopened.

A picture of a mouse at a Carl's Jr. in Nipomo on Sept. 10, 2017, promoted a temporary closure of the restaurant on Sept. 11.
