No Tarrant County restaurants were closed and only one performed poorly in the latest round of health inspections, according to data from the county compiled by the Star-Telegram.
Happy Bowl, a Thai and Chinese restaurant in White Settlement, received 39 demerits when inspectors visited on Sept. 7. Inspectors noted violations including flies, improperly stored food, a hand sink without soap, improper trash disposal, and the “physical facility observed in disrepair with cleaning needed throughout.”
Tarrant County Public Health inspects and scores all restaurants in Tarrant County except for those located in Fort Worth, Arlington, Euless and North Richland Hills. Because the county grades restaurants based on demerits, a zero is a perfect score. Any score 30 or higher is considered to be poor.
No other restaurants had especially noteworthy problems or high scores, according to the inspectors’ notes.
