A Look at Restaurant Inspection Grades in Banning and Beaumont

How did your favorite eatery fare?

Bugs. Dirty hands. Contaminated surfaces.

Are you getting more than you ordered when you eat out in Banning and Beaumont?

Complete food facility inspection results for both cities, including any violations for which an establishment was cited, can be found online at the Restaurant Grading page at the Riverside County Department of Environmental Health website.

Consumers can search Banning's results and Beaumont's results.

There are three possible grades— A, B, and C. Scores from 90 to 100 earn the establishment an A grade. Violations that lower the score below 90 result in a downgrade.

A monthly report of places that didn’t make the cut can be found at the Food Facilities Downgrade page.

Downgraded facilities are required to raise their grade back to an A within a short period of time, according to the website.

HA we have the worst inspector up here. NO way do all those places get A's. If anyone believe Gus' received an A is looking for food poisoning!

Yep Washy....something seems amiss! I got me a nasty dose of "The Double-dOOdy Green Apple Dirty's" TWICE from that one Mexican Restaurant in Mid-Banning, in a 30 day period---and yeah, first time I didn't connect the dots---so I ate there again, but the second time? The lightbulb came on as I dropped about 15 pounds in body weight over a coupla day period. Heck, when I even drive by the place now my stomach churns, and if not for the Garlic Necklace, and Crucifix I keep handy for when I am in that immediate area, and put on real quick to ward off The Screamin' Squirts as I drive by , betcha I would get another dose just by being within "Cucharacha Loogie" Range of the joint....and they are like Cobra's, and can get ya at a distance..ON THE MOVE, and at a fair clip too! I have worked on projects in many restaurant buildings, and their kitchens in the Pass Area over the years----and there are very few I would endorse after seeing what I done saw in many of them. One of THE worst ever, and the place is gone now (Thank God) was The San Gorgonio Inn---was remodeling on that restaurant years back after a fire, and Lord have mercy, I done saw things that would make a maggot spew. Really.

On the original like George Bertos has an A But it did have a C and if you think that the people who work there don't go back to bad habits after the A...you might be considered dumb

Deos the word "Payola" ring a bell?
Suzi V February 02, 2013 at 07:08 PM
I agree, there are 247 restaurants here in Beaumont, and Banning and not even a "B" in sight. And yes Gus's is a slop house!
Suzi V February 02, 2013 at 07:13 PM
PHO92 in Beaumont had a "C" a little while back! Ugh, I have to learn to cook some good soups!!!
Washy February 02, 2013 at 10:12 PM
Suzi they had a C because their kitchen caught fire and they were closed down during that time. That is when they go the C

PHO92 where is that?

I doubt that they actually got graded during a time that they were shut down rebuilding.
Washy February 03, 2013 at 06:13 AM
Gary before you doubt call the health dept. I was there when it happened (not the fire the down grading) After a kitchen or other disaster the health dept comes out and sees if they can partially operate...IF they cannot they get a C and closed down. I happened to be shopping at the health food store next door. Funny the A grade is the exact same date they reopened after construction (and the C is the day after the fire)

Near Stater Bros and Food 4 Less. Great food, but slow as crap service
pam topper February 03, 2013 at 07:31 PM
Thank you,I was thinking about trying it,but maybe not.
Suzi V February 03, 2013 at 07:47 PM
The soups are good, it's a Vietnamese place. Yes I agree the service is very, very slow. They are in the inner corner 2 doors west of the beauty suppliers.
pam topper February 03, 2013 at 08:11 PM
