In July 2013, health inspectors closed Chipotle on Connecticut Avenue in Aspen Hill after the agency got a complaint from a customer who stated "....there was a dead roach in food..." and "no hot water provided at all sinks."
Chipotle, see the report: http://restaurantalert.wusa9.com/mobile/montgomery/restaurant/621
Click on the link above to see a new July 9th inspection report at the same Chipotle citing, "out of compliance for "cold holding temperature."
WUSA9 checked Montgomery County's inspection report and it gives more details citing "food borne illness complaint received from customers" and mentions "potentially hazardous foods...held at 60 degrees and above."
That's almost 20 degrees warmer than the maximum 41 degrees or colder.
Also closed in Montgomery County, Karen's Deli, which is located in the lobby of a Research Boulevard office building in Rockville.
Karen's Deli, see the report: http://restaurantalert.wusa9.com/mobile/montgomery/restaurant/4252
Click on the link above and you'll see the WUSA9 app shows Karen's out of compliance for "food protected from contamination" and out of compliance for "proper hand washing."
Digging deeper into Montgomery County's July 15th paper inspection report for Karen's, it cites, "employee preparing grilled cheese sandwich grabbed the sandwich after placing hands with gloves in the trash can....sandwich discarded."
