Data update: 323 new restaurant inspections

February 16, 2011 

We've added 323 records of health inspections for restaurants, bars, cafeterias and other eateries in Kershaw, Lexington and Richland counties.

The inspections were carried out between Jan. 21 and Feb. 11 by Department of Health and Environmental Control inspectors.

Thirty-nine area establishments in that period earned exceptional scores between 98 and 100 on unannounced, routine inspections.

Thirty-six received B-level scores between 78 and 87 on their routine inspections and seven earned Cs with scores between 61 and 76. All those establishments had or will have the opportunity to improve marks with follow-up inspections. The lowest follow-up score in this period was an A-worthy 92, for Moe's Southwest Grill on North Lake Drive in Lexington, inspected on Jan. 26. Eateries with scores of 88 or higher on routine or follow-up inspections may post an "A" in public view.
