Update: The restaurant was re-inspected on Dec. 7 and allowed to reopen.

During a follow-up inspection Thursday afternoon, the Kansas City Health Department temporarily closed Gojo Japanese Steak House at 4163 Broadway.

The department said roaches were found throughout the restaurant on this third re-inspection. Roaches also were found during its inspections on Nov. 6, Nov. 19, and Nov. 26.

Restaurant officials met with the health department this morning and discussed their plans for correcting the problem.

However, the restaurant will remain closed until it passes another re-inspection.

Until that time, they may not prepare, serve or sell food.

Gojo officials couldn’t be reached for comment.
