Food Inspection Grading

Please review the document titled "FB Food Inspection Grading Criteria" to learn more about the criteria by which Farmers Branch restaurants are graded.

Food Grading Results

Food establishments are automatically uploaded to the website under the Inspecthub Program and are listed alphabetically.

The score will be entered on a numerical scale from from 100 to 0. It is important to remember when looking at the overall score to keep in mind the operation being conducted at that facility. A full-service restaurant, for example, that prepares meals from scratch is involved in more complex operations and processing than a convenience store that sells only prepackaged food items. Also, any inspection is a "snapshot" of the day and time of the inspection.

On any given day, a restaurant could have more or less violations than noted at the time and date the inspection was made and may not be representative of the overall, long-term cleanliness of an establishment. Also, important to remember is, at the time of the inspection, violations are recorded on the inspection form but are often corrected on-the-spot prior to the health inspector leaving the establishment.

Grading criteria are scored 100 and below. The higher the score, the fewer violations at the time of inspection. The grading criteria is as follows:
  • Excellent, 100 - 97
  • Good, 96 - 90
  • Satisfactory, 89 - 81
  • Poor, 80 - 71
  • Failing, 70 or below
