This is a video that I have already seen many times on my social feeds. The video that was originally posted to TikTok by ritalongg and shows at least four rats running around the Taco Cabana floor. SEE THE VIDEO BELOW.

As reported by KSAT-12 in San Antonio, Rita Longoria was wanting to pick up a late snack at the Taco Cabana near Loop 410 and Bandera Rd. Instead of employees she saw this and started recording this video. She then posted to TikTok to warn others. “It was disgusting. It was, like, unreal. It was unbelievable shock,” Longoria said. “I wanted it to blow up, not for myself. I wanted it to blow up because people needed to know. I mean, people can get sick.”

KSAT-12 went to the Taco Cabana location only to find that the store was closed!  According to Taco Cabana, the pests migrated from an outside source within the previous 48 to 72 hours and issued the statement below.

“On Sunday, July 3, 2022, pest activity was identified at Taco Cabana’s restaurant location at 6040 Bandera in San Antonio, TX. The location was immediately closed and a thorough inspection and extensive sanitation was completed. The health and safety of Taco Cabana’s guests and team members, and the cleanliness and high-quality standards of all Taco Cabana restaurants, is, and remains to be, the utmost priority. This was an isolated incident and TC investigated, then worked swiftly and efficiently to address and eliminate the pest situation. The pests are confirmed to have recently migrated from an outside source within the previous 48 to 72 hours, as mandated third-party sanitation and Health Department inspections revealed no recent activity prior to July 3, 2022.”
