These days, telling the waiter there's a fly in your soup is the least of your worries. Think of rats, roaches, flies, employees who don't wash their hands after going to the bathroom, bacteria-laden dishes, food poisoning, rotting food, and worse. So, this column (updated twice a month) lists Dallas businesses that performed poorly on food inspections.

Dallas' Failing Health Inspection Scores

Dallas businesses serving food or beverages are graded on a scale of 0-100; a score of 80 or higher is considered acceptable.
Below, you'll find Dallas food establishments that received the following scores during the two-month period listed:
  • Unacceptable (59 or below) - reinspection required within 24 hrs - marked Poo - has red background until receiving 70+ score
  • Failing (60-69) - reinspection required within 10 days - marked Barf - has red background until receiving 70+ score
  • Passing (70-79) - reinspection required within 30 days - has yellow background until receiving 80+ score
- Once a restaurant with any of the above ratings receives an 80+ score, it will be given a green background.
- For businesses with more than one score in the "Poor Scores" column, scores are listed in the order in which they were assigned.
- Restaurants that received an Unacceptable or Failing score in the prior 10 months are marked with Skull for each instance.
