After being shut down by health inspectors nearly two weeks ago, the popular downtown restaurant Muertos Kitchen and Lounge is expected to reopen on Thursday, according to Kern County Public Health. 

The restaurant was inspected on Wednesday and given a "B" grade. 

The restaurant was shut down on March 9 after cockroaches among other violations were found by health inspectors. 

Health inspectors also observed food not being stored at proper temperatures and build up of grease on filters and exhaust hoods.
