The Wheat Ridge restaurant failed with 10 health code violations in July including:
- Fly strips full flies
- Raw been stored over ready to eat veggies
- Melon cucumber salad thrown out for being too warm
The problem solvers called and left messages and went by the restaurant to speak to someone, but employees said there was no one to speak to. Inspectors returned twice to ensure food safety and gave them a passing grade ten days after the surprise inspection.
The restaurant is on west 44th Ave.

We called and messaged the grill and stopped by for a look. An employee told us there was no manager there, but Amir Grill did pass its follow up inspection.

How restaurants appear on our Report Card
Restaurant Report Card features health inspections in the city and county of Denver, Jefferson County, Weld County, Broomfield and restaurants under the jurisdiction of the Tri-County Health Department. The Tri-County Health Department includes Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties.
An inspection is a “snapshot” of what is happening during the day and time of the inspection. On any given day, a restaurant could have more or fewer violations than noted in an inspection. Also, at the time of an inspection, violations are recorded and can be corrected prior to the inspector leaving the restaurant. If violations are not corrected, a follow-up inspection is scheduled.
The criteria FOX31 Denver uses to give a restaurant a failing grade includes the evaluation of two unannounced inspections by county health inspectors. A failing restaurant must have five or four critical violations on their most recent regular inspection and five or four critical violations on the previous regular inspection. The restaurant may also fail for eight or more violations in one inspection. Health inspectors may conduct critical or follow-up inspections, due to the number of critical violations found during a regular inspection. Those inspections may also be considered for our reports. We recognize restaurants with two regular inspections in a row, with no critical violations, by awarding them an A.
