WTF Are you hesitant to read health reports on your favorite restaurants? (I am)

    Visited one of those web sites that shows health reports on all my local restaurants. I don't mind viewing the excellent rated ones or places I never go to, but when it comes to places I visit, I don't even want to know. I read the report for a few of my favorites, and now I won't go there again...:tears:

    As soon as I read that there's no soap and/or towels at the wash station...repeatedly...I'm out.

    Say what you will about chain eateries, at least they have pretty good corporate oversight to make sure they are in compliance

    Thankfully a few were rated excellent so I just whittled down my list quite a bit. The best news is that one of them is my pizza place. Yesss

    My general rule when it comes to restaurants is the bigger the menu the more problems will arise. Most of the items are frozen and just heated up. I can do that shit at home and save a few bucks.

    Also, Kitchen Nightmares when they show the shitty kitchen cleanliness is scary AF.

    Just read reports on a couple places I frequent. One gets a lot of complaints, but the inspector doesn't find anything wrong. Sounds like whiny customers. The other place I may never eat at again.

    Oh boy. Our favorite (only) Indian restaurant in our town is second on the list in total violations in our county.
    But I think most violations are about the buffet of which I never partake.
    Buffets in general are gross.

    I am already worse filth than any kitchen Gordon Ramsey has made over. Rats run from me and feces throws up when it looks at me.

    I looked in the kitchen of our favorite Vietnamese once.
    Wasn't pretty, but have never had issues. Out of sight out of mind.

    They all have violations all more minor than eating at a friends house. Nope not worried.

    I'm in restaurant kitchens all day long. They ALL have bad shit going on. Ignorance is bliss while eating out.

    If a BBQ joint looks too clean it's probably horrible. The run down BBQ joints in small towns are the best.

    BTW, don't most sushi chefs use bare hands when making sushi?
