Jake's Pup In The Ruff Has Ruff Inspection
Jake's Pup in the Ruff, at Sheridan and Montrose, is closed, and several readers have asked why. Seems that Jake's failed a health department inspection on October 1, and was given a week to make things better. After a week, they weren't, so Jake's is closed until things meet the inspector's approval.
You can find the report here, but it's an onerous process searching for it, and we wouldn't recommend reading it unless you've got a strong constitution. Suffice to say, no restaurant escapes a visit from the inspector without a few violations being noted, even the ones that pass, and that includes some pricey joints that might surprise you.
Jake's has been around Uptown for over 50 years, so we have faith that they'll reopen soon and be a lot cleaner when they do.
UU Note: The convenience store at Magnolia and Wilson has reopened, apparently having resolved its building violations to the city's satisfaction.
