SANTEE -- The county's health department shut down a Sonic Drive-In in Santee on Friday after a report of rats inside the establishment.

The Sonic is located at 10515 Mission Gorge Road.

The restaurant will not be able to reopen until it meets certain requirements, the health department told 10News.

The restaurant does have an 'A' rating. Back in December of 2015, however, the restaurant was inspected following a rodent sighting, although nothing was found at that time.

The health department decided to stop by the Sonic on Friday after receiving a call from 10News, which had been alerted by a viewer.
