Health department temporarily closes Waid's location

The Kansas City Missouri Health Department has temporarily closed Waid's Restaurant at 1130 W. 103rd St.

The restaurant was closed late Monday afternoon for several critical violations including live roaches and rodent infestation.

According to the food establishment inspection report two dead mice and one live one were found on a glue trap in the kitchen area.

Multiple live roaches were found crawling in cabinets and on kitchen walls. Multiple dead roaches were found on glue traps and all over the kitchen floor.

Waid's, a home-style restaurant chain has been serving breakfast, lunch and dinner for more than 50 years.

Several of the Waid’s restaurants were sold to longtime employees in 2004.

One purchased both the 103rd street and Prairie Village locations. An employee said the owner would not be available until Wednesday and probably will not have a comment.
