Restaurant Inspection Reports from the Grayson County Health Department

Three food service establishments in Grayson County —  Rock Creek Golf Club, La Michoacana Meat Market and Diamond Crown Store — received the lowest passing grade on their most recent inspection by the Grayson County Health Department.

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

Rock Creek Golf Club,219 Club House Drive in Gordonville, received a "C" for its inspection after the inspector found a box of chips stored directly on the floor. The report also indicated that there were multiple unmarked spray bottles found in the establishment and that several repackages prepared foods had no dates on them. In addition, the report said the place needed a good scrub and listed an ice baffle with mold and slime on it as well as soiled freezer, oven and a dish washing area.

La Michoacana Meat Market,1000 North Travis St in Sherman received the "C" after inspector found multiple pieces of meat in the freezer without any type of protective container. The report also said the inspector found no sanitizer in the meat market but did find a number of products including WD-40, Raid and cleaners stored next to food items and food prep surfaces.

Diamond Crown Store, 317 N. Hwy 377, in Collinsville received a "C" after it lost points on its most recent inspection for having chemicals stored next to food items. In addition, the report said the inspector found food products stored directly on the floor in the deli area and corn dogs that were not properly covered in the 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.
