Food Inspections Score


City of Ennis - Food Establishment Inspection Scores*    

The letter and numerical grades listed below indicates a final percentage score obtained during the food establishments health inspection:                        
"A" indicates a final percentage score of 90% or higher.  Indicating few or no violations observed during the health inspection.  Although a single critical violations observed during this inspection may reqiure immediate corrections before continuing  food service operations.*                           
"B" indicates a score that is less than 90%, but at least 80%. Indicating minor violations were observed during the health inspection.                 
Generally requires a reinspection within 30 days to 90 days.  Although a single critical violation observed during this inspection may reqiure immediate corrections before continuing food service operations.*                

"C" indictates a final percentage score that is less than 80%, but at least 70%.  Indicating serious infractions were observed during the health inspection.Generally requires a reinspection within 24 hours to 10 day. Although a single critical violations observed during this inspection may reqiure immediate corrections before continuing food service operations.*

Food establishments scoring a "C or above letter grade" typically pose an immediate threat to public health or safety and thereby may be required to close until their problems have been corrected. 

Understanding the Inspection

At each food establishment, inspectors watch for things i.e., food handling practices, food handlers health, pest, take food temperatures, discuss food safety with operators, verify sources of food, inspect refrigerators, equipment and storage areas, equipment, check water temperatures/ chemical sanitizer concentrations, chemical usage and the overall general sanitation of the facility.

If violations of the food regulations are noted during the inspection, the violation is written on the inspection form and the person in charge is reminded of the correct procedure immediately.  High-risk violations are required to be fixed immediately (High risk violations are violations most likely to result illness of the general public). 

Purpose of Inspection

Food establishments are inspected for a variety of reasons: 

Routine inspections are regular, unannounced inspections of the food operation. 

Re-inspections or Follow-up inspections are return visits to the food establishment to re-check High-risk violation items that were not in compliance at the time of the routine inspection and a letter grade/score below A.  Note: All Public Schools are required to have a re-inspection.

Complaint and Illness Investigations are item-specific inspections based on a complaint received from the public or a potential foodborne illness.   Click Here to report a Concern: Food Establishment Complaint Form or use the Report a Concern email link listed below.  

Pre-Opening Inspections are conducted to check newly constructed food establishments for proper facility and equipment requirements before food is allowed into the establishment.

Only Routine and Follow-Up inspection scores are available online.  Complaint, Illness Investigation, Mobile Food Establishment, Temporary Food Establishment, and Pre-Opening inspections are not available online.

*Although any food establishments may be required to close if a serious and imminent threat to the health or safety to the general public exist.  These threat may include but are not limited to: No hot water, Sewage backups or overflows, No utilities (Electrical power and/or Water), Fire, Roach or Rodent infestation, Contaminated food, Foodborne illness outbreak, Inadequate refrigeration and flooding.

NOTE:  Each inspection report is a ‘snapshot’ of conditions present at the time of the inspection. On any given date or hour, an establishment may have fewer or more violations than noted in their most recent inspection.
