Tioga eatery fails Health Department inspection

staff reports
Restaurant Inspection Reports from the Grayson County Health Department

Failure to keep some foods at the proper temperature and to use gloves got a local eatery the lowest grade available from Grayson County Health Department inspectors.

Clark's Outpost, 103 S Hwy. 377 N Tioga, earned the "F" grade back on June 31.

The GCHD scores local eateries based on their adherence to codes set by the Texas Department of Health.

Clark's Outpost's inspection report showed it lost 31 points for problems that ranged from improper food holding temperatures to uncovered food in the fridge. The inspection report also noted that staff were handling the food without the use of gloves or other protective devices. The inspection report also noted storage containers like squirt bottles for food items were not labeled correctly and bread and other foods were being stored directly on the floor in the walk-in freezer.

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.
