A drippy situation caused one local eatery to get a “C” on its most recent inspection by the Grayson County Health Department. Applebees in Sherman received a “C” grade after an inspector watched condensation water drip into the ranch dressing on the serving line.


The inspector also noted a cook touch his apron with his gloved hand and stick that hand in his pocket before returning to cooking and touching food without changing gloves. In addition, the report noted that the inspector saw multiple foods stored in refrigerators without lids.


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.
