Dirty Diners San Diego

Ever wonder why restaurants in San Diego County always have 'A' ratings on their health inspections, but you rarely, if ever, see any grade below that?

The reason is this: Restaurants that receive a 'B' or 'C' rating can regain their 'A' rating in a matter of days if they act quickly (There is no 'D' or 'F'). So, that restaurant with the near perfect health rating you ate at on Thursday could have been swarming with roaches on Tuesday.

Through the California Public Records Act, we obtained the list of restaurants that received 'B' and 'C' grades at any point between January 2010 and February 2012. Then we mapped them out.

80 - 89 = B
70 - 79 = C


Use the search bar to see if a specific restaurant is on the list, or type in your address to check whether any of these establishments are near your home. You can click the colored tabs at the bottom to sort by score. You can also use the scroll to view the entire list.

To find out the current rating of a restaurant, visit the County of San Diego's Food Facility Inspection Search. Make sure to check out our breakdown of the 10 worst grades on this list.
