I report on health inspections. I have no idea where you should have dinner

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?

    Yes! Health inspections help me to decide. One type of restaurant always seems to be in violation one way or another and I stay clear of them at all costs. If I am heading to a new place I know nothing about, I will check it out. And…. I also check out the ones I frequent.
