Restaurant Monitor

Eagle Staff Report

The Restaurant Monitor is a weekly listing of scores for restaurants inspected by the Brazos County Health Department.

All the county’s public and private food service establishments — roughly 800 — are inspected at least once per six-month period by the department. It schedules follow-up visits as deemed necessary to monitor an establishment’s compliance with health laws.

Under county guidelines, food stores with both retail and deli operations receive separate scores for each.

Inspection scores are on a 100-point scale, with from one to five points deducted from various categories. Major violations carry four- and five-point deduction.

Generally, scores below 80 might cause the department to schedule a follow-up visit. Scores in the 60s and below would cause the department to consider closing an establishment temporarily for health reasons.

Some major violations also might cause the department to temporarily close a restaurant.

The following is a list of inspections from Jan. 25 to Feb. 1:
