There are many clean ones but quite a few of them are far from any of us would call "very clean."
Bigfoot, donut shops don't count.

I agree if you're talking about a roach somewhere in the kitchen, scurrying behind the equipment. But in the food is a whole nother matter. How does any place making even a minimal effort to be sanitary wind up serving someone a roach?

It sounds like they had a bunch of food stored in a walk-in with a loose-fitting lid, a roach got in there and died, and then they dumped the foot out into some reheating vessel without eyeing it closely, distractedly scooped from that pot of reheated entree X when someone ordered that dish--and voila, the other white meat!

I'm only glad there was no Krispy Kreme in my county or I would have been in trouble.

I agree about when you find it in the food it's another game altogether. But my point was just that many restaurants, to include some nicer ones, might have a bug or two walking around them where you least expect them.
