DUNN, N.C. — A Harnett County restaurant is open again after being shut down last week because of roaches.

When inspectors went to the Mandarin House in Dunn last Friday, they said, a roach infestation was so severe that they had to immediately close the restaurant.

Over the weekend, the owner told us Wednesday, he removed all of the equipment, thoroughly cleaned everything and brought in an exterminator.

This week, inspectors rechecked the restaurant and allowed it to reopen.

Mandarin House has had roach problems before. A November inspection report noted the bugs.

The eatery's last three regular scores on inspection reports were 83.5, 88.5 and 81.5.

Wednesday, the owner told us the roaches are gone. He added that it is just hard to run a restaurant.
