SAN ANTONIO – A restaurant on the city’s West Side was cited last month after none of its employees were wearing hair restraints while working in the kitchen.
La Isla Restaurant, located in the 700 block of Old Highway 90 West, was given a score of 77 and was also dinged for having a garbage receptacle open during the inspection.
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.
