Restaurant Ratings

An 82.5! That's the score on a recent restaurant inspection. An 82.5 is a low B. A few weeks ago, we reported on a restaurant that scored a 78.5! How does a restaurant score that low, and still operate?

That's a question many of you have asked! You want to know what really goes into those scores we all see posted on restaurant walls, and that we report on every Friday. So we're giving you an "insiders" look to find out! Thursday at 6 p.m. on TV, we take you behind the scenes of a typical inspection.

Why are some violations more of a deduction than others – such as dirty dishes vs. roaches? Questions you asked – shared with an inspector – who shares the difference between what's disgusting and what's dangerous!

See you Thursday!
