Not having a food service manager and not knowing when, where and how to store things earned a local convenience store the lowest grade given out during the most recent round of restaurant inspections by the Grayson County Health Department.


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.


Lucky Stop & Go, at 830 S. Crockett Ave. in Denison, received a “C” grade for, among other things, not having a properly certified food service manager on duty when the Grayson County Health Department inspector arrived. The inspector’s notes from that day say the establishment must have a food service manager on duty at all times. It also says several items were stored incorrectly or stored in the wrong place and that some items, like sanitizer that the inspector would have expected to see, weren’t there at all.
