NET Health food safety inspections happen daily throughout Smith County and across East Texas. It's the job of the inspectors to make sure that restaurant management and employees are following and adhering to established procedures when it comes to preparing, handling, and serving food to the public.

We like to know that the food we purchase has been prepared and handled properly, but there are occasions when restaurants have an 'off day', but that one 'off day' could be the difference between someone catching an illness or possibly dying from some kind of contamination.

Seeing how it's Christmas time and we've got a lot of family and friends in town, we want to know that the place we go to eat is safe, clean, and a good value. Thanks to NET Health (Northeast Texas Public Health District) we know there are some great and clean restaurants around town, but there are a handful that we have to be alerted to because of violations from their latest inspection.
