UPDATE: Local Restaurant Inspection Reports

Find out how local restaurants measure up, courtesy of the Virginia Department of Health.

Here are the latest restaurant reviewed by the state health department. You can see their reports by looking on the chart below. For more details, click on the number under "critical violations," which will take you to the actual report on the state's Web site.

If the report includes information that about a restaurant correcting violations during a visit, we will report that information. If the report does not include any information, we will label it "n/a" for not applicable.

Restaurants recently inspected in the greater Kingstowne, Rose Hill and Franconia area include: 

  • Burger King
  • Blimpie Subs & Salad

What's a 'Critical Violation'?

A "critical violation" is one that "poses a direct or immediate threat to the safety of the food being served."  Non-critical violations are generally related to cleaning or maintenance.

"Ideally, an operation would have no critical violations, or none which are not corrected immediately and not repeated. In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that a complex, full-service food operation can routinely avoid any violations," according to VDH's website.

The site continues: "Keep in mind that any inspection report is a 'snapshot' of the day and time of the inspection. On any given day, a restaurant could have fewer or more violations than noted in the report. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term cleanliness of an establishment."

How This Works

Clicking on the restaurant name below will bring you to the business' page in the Patch directory of local businesses. Clicking here will bring you to VDH's web page where you can find detailed information on any of the restaurants listed below. Restaurants are listed on the site by county and alphabetical order.

Clicking on the number under critical violations will take you directly to that restaurant's report.

Patch will update this table as new reports come in. Have something to say about one of the restaurants? Tell us about it!

Hi Mike, You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to find locations in the actual report! It's organized by city or county, with no ZIP codes. It would be extremely helpful if the health department could make it searchable w/ZIPs.

Some of the links are misdirected..Kumo's report is actually King Street Blues..

How can Riviera have had such a bad inspection, but then have not had a followup inspection for nearly two years? I understand the county is probably short-staffed, but to me, it would seem both the county (to make sure it didn't get even worse) and the owners (hoping to prove it was all fixed) would certainly want to have a followup inspection in some kind of timely period after that.

Those links appear to be correct. Were there other wrongs ones that you noticed?
