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 every 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 a score of 70+.
  • Failing (60-69) - reinspection required within 10 days - marked Barf - has red background until receiving a score of 70+. If its latest inspection score listed below is 60-62 and thus it scored barely above Unacceptable, it is marked with Warning.
  • Passing (70-79) - reinspection required within 30 days - has yellow background until receiving an 80+ score. If it barely passed the latest inspection listed below with a score of 70-72, it is marked with Caution. A passing score does not meet acceptable standards.

- 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 score in the prior 10 months are marked with Red Skull for each instance.
- Restaurants that received a Failing score in the prior 10 months are marked with Skull for each instance.
