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 own 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?

P.S. I've eaten at the Schlotzsky's on Belt Line Rd many times. I've never noticed anything to concern me. Still, I think the next time I'm hungry for a delectable sandwich composed of a unique combination of premium meats, cheeses, and marinated black olives served on hot sourdough bread, I'll go to the Schlotzsky's restaurant a few blocks north on Plano Rd. (Maybe. Its score? 87.) Or the one on Coit Rd. (Its score? 88.) Come on, Schlotzsky's. I know you can all do Lotz! better.
