Restaurants in Pinal County had another month of stellar performance on their food inspections in June.

The inspections have revealed an ongoing streak of stellar performance for food safety practices in Pinal restaurants. Almost all restaurants received an Excellent rating, only a handful were given a Satisfactory rating, and none got marks lower than that.

There are four categories for ratings, Excellent (E), Satisfactory (S), Needs Improvement (N), and Unacceptable (U).

Establishments with E ratings are found to be in full compliance, an S rating means the restaurant has one or more item out of compliance but previously observed problems are resolved, N means something was found out of compliance but previously observed problems were not fixed, and U means violations that pose an imminent health hazard were found.

Food inspections apply to any food establishment, not just restaurants. Grocery stores, schools, snack bars and any other community organization that serves food can be subject to inspection.

Here’s a list of the 35 restaurants in 11 cities across Pinal that were inspected this month:
