    I wonder what some of your kitchens at home would score....

    Also, I could care less what the score is since its based on one day in the restaurant. If you came into my kitchen while I was cooking for..lets say 100 people at lunch, I'm sure my ish wouldn't be as clean as it would be if you come between 2:30 and 4:30 - you know, right before the dinner rush..

    If its not going to kill me, I'll eat it.

    Speaking as a North Carolinian, one of the things I love is knowing what a restaurant's sanitation score is. Nothing is scarier than visiting a state that doesn't require a sanitation score being posted.

    While not a Buckeye fan, I must say, 83.5 is pretty low. I mean, you really, really have to do things wrong to get that score.

    I used to work in the food industry and anything under a 94 is just disgusting. I don't think people realize that they get extra points right off the bat if the manager or cooks have a food handling certification. There are places that smell like mold and urine when you walk in the door that have a score of 93. Gross.

    I mean 83 and a half. Still disgustingly dirty.

    OMG! An 82? I love their stuff but a place has to be pretty dirty with numerous violations to score an 82. Yuk. Thank goodness Fresh Market is just a half-mile down the road!
