Restaurant Ratings By Request (Feb. 1, 2008)

Posted February 1, 2008

Every Friday evening, we highlight the top- and bottom-scoring restaurants. However, most restaurants fall in the middle of the scale.

So we turn to our viewers for the Restaurants by Request segment, and ask you what restaurants you want to hear about.

We get each restaurant's last three regular inspection reports, so you can have an idea of the restaurant's history, which shows a more complete picture of its ongoing sanitation practices.

Some restaurants receive a two-point bonus for attending a food safety course. We do not include those points, because they have nothing to do with the actual sanitation of the restaurant at the time of the inspection.

    The Shack has far better food and is far cleaner than its "gigh-class" brethren in this ratings article. We've been to five of these and there is no comparison for either cleanliness or food. The Shack is far and away the WINNER here. Did I mention price? That, too. Very little selection of cabernets, though....Bring your own.
