83 And Under

Restaurant Scores

The Health Department of the City of Richardson conducts inspections of restaurants on a regular basis. The department publishes the results for all to see. According to the city, "Scores are based on a scale of zero to 100. A score of 90 to 100 is excellent; 80 to 89 is good; 70 to 79 is acceptable; and 60 to 69 is marginal." It's rare for any restaurant to be scored below "acceptable." Most are good or even excellent. Many achieve a perfect 100 score.

After the jump, a list of under achievers.

Restaurants in the list below are under-achievers. They are the restaurants rated 83 and below on their latest inspection. Why 83? That's still "good" in the city's estimation. But it's lower than the scores for dozens of other restaurants in the city of Richardson. It's a score that should encourage you to do better. Why not excellence for everyone? It's not impossible. A large number of restaurants score a perfect 100.

Restaurants that score 83 and under will be taken out of my personal rotation of eating places until their next inspections show they can do better. How do your own favorite eating places stack up? How many are on this list of under-achievers?
