Best and Worst Restaurant Inspection Reports for the Week Ending July 12, 2022

The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Health Department inspects restaurants twice a year and ranks businesses on a 100-point scale. Scores below 70 require corrective action. Restaurants are re-examined if they fail to meet important criteria.

To file a health complaint, call the Environmental Health Department at 423-209-8110. The results are original and do not immediately reflect changes, which sometimes leads to incremental adjustments.
