Indianapolis Restaurant Inspection Failures - November 2012!

Restaurants With Poor Inspection Results in Marion County

By

November's restaurant inspections were a little worse than October's. November's worst score was 13 critical violations, whereas in October, the worst had only five.

Some of the worst offender's were cited for such violations as lack of hand washing facilities and lack of proper dish washing facilities. If the dishes aren't getting to a certain temperature, they're just not getting clean enough to kill all the germs. Many of the offenses cited included improper storage of chemicals and one establishment even had rodents or pests present in the restaurant at the time of the inspection!

This list represents those restaurants during the month of November 2012 that had five or more Critical violations -- those that are considered a risk for foodborne illness during their last inspection. While the Marion County Health Department warns that it's hard to get a good sense of a restaurant's cleanliness from one inspection, I would keep an eye on these and how they perform over the next few months. If they make this list several months in a row, I would avoid them.

Here is the list of those restaurants in Marion County which had five or more Risk Factor Violations, with the worst at the top of the list. After you peruse the worst, please take a look at the many Marion County restaurants that achieved perfect inspections during the month of November 2012. They deserve our support and our business.
