    Why don't you take a peak at Mary Hicks' comment. Getting an A doesn't deem worthy of a "mention". Learn to read Mike. Nowhere in my first comment did I state anything about these restaurants recieving a B. I was just relaying the fact that people should educate themselves about food grading systems before possibly intoxicating their bodies by eating at a subpar restaurant.

    i dont see anywhere in the comment section anyone thought that a B was good.

  • romeopm Feb 5, 2007

    chancie, who said a "B" was good?

  • steelersfan Feb 5, 2007

    Food grading systems do not work like school grading systems. Educate yourselves people. Just because they have a grade in the 90s does not make it an "A". You can be awarded a 98 and still have rodents running around in your kitchen.

    Knightdale Seafood made headlines with their B, shouldn't their regrade of an 'A' atleast be worth a mention? Mary Hicks

    On the news tonight there was reference to "knats and flies" at one restaurant. Last time I checked, the offending insect in question is spelled "gnats." Does no one edit these things?
