13 D-Rated Restaurants in June in Metro Phoenix
Although not all restaurants participate in voluntary health grading from the county, a look into last month's reports does give a pretty good picture of the compliance of local restaurants. While the vast majority scored A and B grades that participated, thirteen spots across the Valley were given D grades. Most of these spots became compliant to environmental health standards during the visit, but others will still need to clean up their act a bit before the health inspector makes another visit.
