The Garland Health Department uses a 100-point scoring system during each unannounced routine inspection. Every violation noted is debited using a weighted scale (1 - 5) based on severity.
The frequency of inspection is based on each establishment’s potential "risk." The "risk" is based upon the previous inspection score average, number of critical or dangerous violations per inspection, type of food preparation and volume of customers. Unannounced scoring inspections are conducted from one to four times per year based on the calculated "risk" of the establishment. Find out more information on Restaurant Scores.
