El Molcajete Mexican Restaurant #3 2590 Hamilton Mill Road Score: 65/U How many more times will patrons health be risked before this hell hole is shut down.... Enough is enough. They should be ashamed and put out of business. This is the 4th or 5th time they have failed now.

I know they failed once because their refrigerator quit working.
