MiamiHerald / Before you go out for Thanksgiving dinner (some people don’t like to cook) or head to a restaurant after the holiday (some people get tired of leftovers), we figured we’d drop some Rodent Report knowledge on you.

These Miami-Dade and Broward places were cited by state inspectors – some were shut down for the day – for having rodents or evidence of rodents over the last month. These come straight from the state inspection reports without passion or prejudice:

?  Budare Bistro, 1916 Weston Rd., Weston – Sometimes, having only eight violations is enough to get your doors shut if one of the violations involves fresh rodent droppings. Noted on Nov. 6: “Moist one next to prep sink. Moist one under grill table. More than five moist under kitchen equipment.” On Nov. 7, Budare got things straightened out. Well, except for that live roach on the wall.

?  Exquisite Catering by Robert, 1800 NE 150th St., North Miami – The inspector noted Wednesday “approximately 12 to 15 dry rodent droppings under shelves in dry storage room.” The inspector also spotted some bugs, as well as stored food not covered in the walk-in freezer. Robert or his employees got their act together by Thursday’s return inspection.
