Restaurant Inspection Reports from the Grayson County Health Department

Local eateries seem to be on top of the requirements for providing a safe eating experience if the list of most recent inspections by the Grayson County Health Department is any indication. That list included only one place that didn't make and "A" grade and it made a "B". 

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.

The only establishment on this week's short list that didn't make an "A" was Asian Gourmet, 810 N. Union St ., in Whitesboro and they earned a "B".
