We post frequently about restaurants and many times those posts involve reviews of our visits, but this is a little different. Tarrant County has a searchable database of restaurants where you can look up health department inspection results and scores. I wouldn’t necessarily look up these things before I visit every restaurant, but if I have reason to wonder, then it’s very easy to look up the details. You can find the database here.
It is particularly interesting to see the progression of scores over a period of time. Inspections from the last 2-3 years are available so you can see if a favorite place is getting better or worse as times goes on. I searched for a couple of my favorites, Baja’s Mex Grill and Amore’s Pasta and Pizza, and was happy to see they are in good shape currently. (Interestingly, though, Baja had a questionable score about 2+ years ago, but since then has been much better, so I’m guessing management got the message loud and clear).
