Panhandle Health's Food Inspection Hit List 2010

It's been a little while since we took a stroll together down Foodborne Illness Lane, but it's so pretty this time of year so let's have a go at it, shall we? Panhandle Health District is kind enough to provide us with a website, which is updated regularly with information about how many health code violations our area's restaurants and eateries have managed to rack up in the last three years.

It's something I find interesting for some sick reason, and I'm not trying to pick on any restaurant owners or give them a bad name, I swear. I've only included establishments with 3 or more violations on their record below. This info is already available on the web, and I'm simply gathering and reposting it. Keep in mind, these violations occur for a variety of reasons, some are probably quite mild and some are possibly horrifying (the site doesn't provide details), and I'd assume that most eateries are very good about taking care of whatever caused the violation. So, grab your Extra Strength Maalox, and I'll meet you at the Coyote Cafe...
