Dirty dining: Did your favorite restaurant make the food-inspection naughty list?

Don’t think of clean eating as just a trendy diet. The places you eat should prepare your food correctly — with washed hands — on clean surfaces. We analyzed restaurant inspections from zip codes 75231, 75238 and 75243 to see how many restaurants didn’t make the grade. To see specific grades at your favorite restaurants, check out the Food Inspection Scores database on the City of Dallas website.
