I have heard "94 and out the door". I do think that the system in Mecklenburg is great. You always have a general idea of the sanitation status of your chose restaruant. I recall going to an Indian restaurant for lunch and when I got back to my hotel (some while back) the same restaurant had been closen down as the temperature in the buffet wasn't kept at a high enough temperature.

I have found that Asian restaurants will generally have a lower score as they practice different sanitation habits in their countries. It is good that they are made to assimilate to our standards.
Nevertheless, I would likely eat in a Asian restaurant with a score of "93" but not in a hamburger joint.

My date and I recently went to a Thai restaurant. The food was great and sushi excellent. My date had scallops in her meal. She got terrible food poisioning from them. The restaurant had a very high sanitation grade but a bad bunch of scallops. A friend that accompanied us that is a local doctor told us before to not order scallops. They are often bad.

I would not eat raw scallops, raw oysters, or for that matter any raw seafood this far inland. No telling where they got them and how long they have been out of the water.

You are just asking to spend days sitting on the toilet making explosive noises.

Ends up i ordered the wrong pizza. They offered to fix it free as long as i could wait which i did.

So a weird night for me but i wanted to pass along the trick with the servesafe certificates. That certificate is worth 2 points if you see them near a relatively low score you might want to do the math.
first mistake is getting pizza from pizza hut (uuuhhhggg) lolol:d

I agree generally. The scallops were actually cooked. The sushi at the restaurant is supposed to be the best in town and I must admit it looks teriffic. I believe that the scallop situation was just an unfortunate occurance, but I will discourage anyone from ordering scallops.

If they were indeed cooked, then that would indicate this best sushi restaurant in town has some serious issues with how it makes sushi. Maybe it would be best if you didn't go there again.

Interesting thread, I have been wondering about this myself and most places I go to have a number in the mid 90. Today I was at a café in Boone and noticed the number and wow, I see 99 for the first time. I sure want to eat in a clean place so I my goal will be to notice the number and only go to restaurants that have higher than 95 score.
