If you are in the mood for ice cream before the colder, winter months arrive, you should head over to the Dippin' Dots in Lakeland where they've scooped up perfect inspection scores over the last year. And while you are in Lakeland, drive over to The Lakeland Center to score a good meal at one of their eateries that also had no violations in any report in twelve months.
The bay area counties highlighted this week with no violations for the entire year include Highlands, Hillsborough, and Polk.
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) through the Division of Hotels and Restaurants inspects restaurants throughout the state. State inspectors can return for multiple visits stemming from one inspection until problems are corrected.
The list below include seated and non-seated restaurants that received "zero" violations on every inspection over the last 12 months from its last inspection date, indicated below. Each report is a "snapshot" of conditions present at the time of the inspection.
