Some well-known chains made the list of perfect scores during the week of April 30, along with three restaurants inside Tampa International Airport. Two Papa John's Restaurants, Einstein Bagels, and a Longhorn Steakhouse location had no violations with the Division of Hotels and Restaurants recently.
Twenty-one restaurants total scored well and Hillsborough County had the most with eight eateries mentioned. There were three restaurants each in Polk and Sarasota Counties, two eateries in Orange County and Pinellas County, and one restaurant each in Citrus, Pasco and Manatee Counties.
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) through the Division of Hotels and Restaurants inspects restaurants throughout the state. Each week, abcactionnews.com analyzes the latest list of restaurant inspections to identify those that received zero-violations, thus obtaining the perfect score. Abcactionnews.com's analysis is based on information posted on DBPR's Website.
State inspectors can return for multiple visits stemming from one inspection until problems are corrected. The lists below include seated and non-seated restaurants that received "zero" violations on the first visit of an inspection. This list does not include restaurants that have received zero violations after multiple visits for the same inspection. Each inspection report is a "snapshot" of conditions present at the time of the inspection.
The list includes restaurants in Citrus, Hardee, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Manatee, Orange, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Sumter and Sarasota counties. These restaurants all earned a perfect score during inspections the week of April 30, 2012.
