I want to know, and then again, maybe I don't wanna know.

Thank God for the Alabama Health Department and the work they do to check on our food establishments. If not for them, we would never know what's going on.

One positive for the restaurant industry of Alabama and West Alabama, only a few places made the list this time. So, that's a good thing.

The recent Summer 2022 health department ratings/scores mention several establishments I have frequented in West Alabama.

As well as many others across the state of Alabama.

Maybe you have visited these as well.

Below is a list of some food establishments and lodging facilities I have chosen to highlight.  All of the inspections were done in the last 60-90 days. The "enforcement actions" are also listed and according to the health dept., these are typically corrected so the establishment can reopen within a few hours.

Here's the list of Food Establishments from the Alabama Dept. of Public Health.

I have highlighted a few in West Alabama.
