SANITARY RATINGS OF LOCAL RESTAURANTS
All restaurants in Florida are subject to periodic health inspections. There is a free app for your phone called “WHAT THE HEALTH” that will let you view the health inspection score for any restaurant in Florida. In some other states, like California, their inspection grades must be posted on the front door of the restaurant( not a bad idea for Florida!).
The app is very easy to use and actually shows you what the infractions are.
The only problem that I have found is that it only populates restaurants in your current area. There is a search engine but it does not work. So, if you live in Lakewood Ranch and want to search a restaurant on Main Street-Sarasota, it will only show up if you are near that location.
Nevertheless, this is an app well worth looking into.
