San Bernardino County Environmental Health Specialist routinely inspects all food facilities twice a year to determine the level of sanitation. Effective January 1, 2010, California restaurants will no longer be able to use trans fat to prepare foods for the public. Inspected retail food establishments receive a score according to their inspection report. The author likes to call these scores the Sanitation Points and you can review them on the county web site http://www.sbcounty.gov/dehs/restgrades/RegionCities.aspx?region=3

Twentynine Palms/Wonder Valley:

The top 3 scores for Sanitation are the Fairfield Inn 100 sanitation points, Wonder Valley Community Center 99 sanitation points, and the 29 palms RV and Golf Resort 99 sanitation points The 3 lowest scores are Laura Shermans Cafe 73 sanitation points, Dragon House Chinese 82 sanitation points, and The Palms Wonder Valley 83 sanitation points.

I always get a kick out of reading these because who would have thought that Break N Run Billiards at 96 sanitation points would be cleaner than the Twentynine Palms Inn at 94 sanitation points

Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree:

The top scores for Sanitation are the Kasa Market 100 sanitation points, and G&M Oil Company 56284 29 Palms Hwy 99 sanitation points. The lowest scores are McDonald’s 57626 29 palms Hwy 83 sanitation points and Cineplex 85 sanitation points.

These points are current but subject to change. A score below a 70 will result in closure by the health inspector for no less than 24 hours to indefinitely

The Environmental Health Division investigates consumer complaints regarding food safety and sanitation at all retail food facilities in San Bernardino County. If you have a consumer complaint regarding a San Bernardino County food facility, please call 909-884-4056 to report the complaint.

    The last inspection I got I was 100%. But then I am a TFF cart so I have a different set of rules. The neat thing about a stainless steel cart is keeping it clean is rather simple.

    Keeping your area clean, maintaining the proper temperatures and using common sense sanitary practices is really all the health department requires. I don’t know how you can not pass a health inspection with 100% if your follow the simple rules they set out.

    To the defense of some of these places. A deduction can be made for things as simple as a unshielded light or a floor drain covered by a mop bucket, so unless you know what the violations were it should be taken with a grain of salt.
