Dirty Dining (again) at Coco's in Laughlin

Laughlin Restaurant Inspections 

Laughlin, NV

Coco's Restaurant
Edgewater Resort Casino
Date of Inspection:   July 15, 2015Inspection by the Southern Nevada Health District*

Here are the latest Southern Nevada Health District Restaurant Inspection report posted for Coco's 
Restaurant. This is public information taken from what is posted on their website (as of 7-20-15).

The inspection process shows two separate inspections for the Restaurant and the Cook's Line.  
Each is shown below.

Overall the restaurant received a B grade with 20 demerits including violations for Handwashing, 
keeping food protected from potential contamination, pest control, proper washing of kitchenware, 
and facility maintenance.   

List of violations:

Previous inspections: 

The Cook's line at Coco's had a even worse inspection, with a C grade and 30 demerits.  (SNHD
will normally close a facility if they have more than 40 demerits).   What is more alarming is it wasn't 
that long ago, on April 2, 2015 they also had a bad inspection, with a C grade and 28 demerits for 
the Cook's line (see details here) .

Violations include handwashing, temperature controls on food, protecting food from potential
contamination, and several others. 

Previous inspections show a long of poor results:

In summary, we won't visit or dine there until some obvious management issues with regard to 
adhering to the health codes and cleanliness have been put in place.  It has been quite a long
time since we visited after our last bad experience there with a dirty dining room and unfriendly
service.    Just recently on our Facebook Group, a visitor at the restaurant had even shared that
they were told there was no toast to go with breakfast because their toaster was broken 
(for the 2nd time).  See below:

Background info on the inspection process: 

An "A" grade is the top grade an establishment can receive.  Generally if any grade less than an 
A is received the restaurant can and does have a re-inspection shortly thereafter after correcting 
any violations.  Keep in mind there is a lag time between when the inspections are performed and 
when they appear on the Southern Nevada Health District Website.  A restaurant may have been 
inspected or re-inspected (in the case of a low grade) since the data was posted.  
When a reinspection is done the list of violations/demerits from the prior low grade is no longer viewable.
All restaurants are required to have their latest grade certificate displayed for the public to see.  
If you don't see one, ask.

Note:  We do update this article when new/re-inspections are posted.
