Sewage leak prompts daylong shutdown of Abilene Cotton Patch Cafe


ABILENE, Texas - The Cotton Patch Cafe in Abilene is open again after being forced to close Tuesday due to a sewage leak.

The Halloween scare for the restaurant's management came after raw sewage backed up into the kitchen, causing an "immediate health hazard," according to the city of Abilene's food inspection report.

A plumber fixed the drain and the restaurant was allowed to reopen Wednesday.

The restaurant received a 95 score on its most recent inspection in July.
