Just in time for one of the most important dining-out evenings of the year, Valentine’s Day, the Grayson County Health Department inspected a number local eateries.


The Grayson County Health Department rates restaurants and other establishments that serve food based on their adherence to codes set by the Texas Department of Health. Restaurants are given an “A,” “B,” “C” or “F” score. An “A” means sanitarians reported no or only a few minor violations. Those with a “B” were found to have several minor violations, but nothing major. Restaurants with a “C” might have a major violation or repeat offenses, but in the inspectors’ opinions, nothing bad enough to warrant an “F.”


An “A” means sanitarians reported 10 or fewer demerits. Those with a “B” received 11-20 demerits. Restaurants with a “C” had 21-30 demerits and restaurants with “F” ratings received more than 30 demerits.


All of those listed in this report received a grade of at least a “B” or higher, probably ensuring there was lots of love to spread for the staff from the front house to the dishwashers.

Jalapeno’s, 946 W. Van Alstyne Pkwy., in Van Alstyne;
