A few weeks ago, my brother-in-law and my wife were driving through York County debating where to eat dinner.
Christine wasn’t interested in Italian food. Paul wanted to find a place with a short wait.
I was sitting in the backseat with my 11-month-old daughter, trying to keep her asleep.
“Where do you want to go?,” my wife shot back at me from the driver’s seat.
I offered my opinion and went back to watching my daughter.
“Wait,” Paul said.”Didn’t that place fail it’s health inspection recently.”
That’s a question I often get from family, friends and others in the community.
Health inspections have been part of my beat since I started at that YDR in 2000.
Most of the time, I know the answer and can even rattle off a few specific violations for places that didn’t fare well on their last review.
However, I’m not a health inspector. I’ve tagged along a few times and watched how an inspection unfolds, but I don’t work for the state.
Does the outcome of a health inspection influence your choice of restaurant?
