JACKSONVILLE, Florida – A popular pizzeria in Jacksonville Beach is just one of the restaurants closed due to rodents this month.

Biggie’s Pizza’s in Jacksonville Beach

The pizzeria was closed last week after inspectors found a live rodent. The report says it was on the baking line behind the pizza oven.

The restaurant was also hit with a violation for renovations carried out without an approved plan. The inspector noted that the front door had been replaced with an always-open roll-up door. It is considered a problem because the kitchen is not closed.

Biggie’s Pizza is awaiting a follow-up inspection.
