WARNING: This will probably ruin your experience in your favorite local restaurants :)

My favorite peruvian chicken place, Super Chicken, was shut down because cockroaches were falling out of the ceiling tiles. :(

Not sure why a Canadian company has these on-line, but its a good resource nonetheless.

Man, under their criteria my kitchen would have like 8 billion Critical violations.

That being said, I've waited at a lot of places. The worst was Darryls at Military Circle in Norfolk. That place was like the Pirates of the Carribean of the restaurant world. Every night we had an unofficial contest, see a mouse or a cockroach and get your meal free. The place had good food. But man was it nasty. It has since closed and, hopefully, the ground was razed and salted.

I used to work in Fairfax as a Health Inspector. 8 critical violations doesn't scare me. . . the 32 critical violations I wrote this one restaurant up for did! Check the restuarant out before you eat there.

And if you don't know the establishment's history - limit your food to non-protein based meals.

After a couple of years worth of inspections I NEVER eat at asian, indian establishments or places that serve "gyros". That's just the result of my personal experience in the field. Ugh. . .

I really don't trust these inspectors. I used to work at Cinema Arts theater (Fair City Mall, across from Woodson HS), and based on the criteria in those pages, their snack bar would have about 200 critical violations. We just stuck our hands in big tubs of popcorn and ate it. The manager told me once not to worry about washing my hands. We never, once cleaned the smoothie making machine.

Silver Diner seems to be particularly bad at this health inspection game.
