How clean and sanitary is your favorite restaurant? Eugene restaurants are required to have semi-annual inspections and are docked points based on a wide variety of codes and violations ranging from employees failing to wash their hands to having bowls of water with growing bacteria underneath sinks.
After an inspection, restaurants are awarded a score out of 100. Scores that are 70 and below are considered to have failed the inspection and are required to have an additional review within 30 days.
Out of 573 restaurants, five failed. Three failing restaurants — Teriyaki Boy, Korea House Restaurant and Noodle Head — have addresses off of E. 13th Avenue.
Rivas Taco Shop on Willamette Street earned the lowest score, accumulating only 51 points. The good news: nearly 63 percent of Eugene’s restaurants received a perfect 100/100.
