SAN ANTONIO – A Mexican restaurant on the city’s Northwest Side was cited late last month for having rusty shelves in its walk-in cooler.
Taqueria Jalisco, located in the 3800 block of Fredericksburg Rd., received a score of 77 after racking up a list of violations that also included duct tape being used to hold together several pieces of equipment and staff using grocery bags to store food.
The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District's scoring of food establishments is based on a 100-point demerit system.
The inspection reports, which establishments are required to post in public view, feature a number score at the top and bottom of the front page. A separate placard with the number score and a letter grade (example: 100/A) is also available upon request from the food establishment. Posting the placard is voluntary.
- 100-90 = A (Very Good to Acceptable)
- 89-80 = B (Acceptable to Marginal)
- 79 or lower = C (Marginal to Poor)
- Metro Health indicates that scores of 69 or lower are failing scores.
