DENVER -- How do your favorite restaurants do when it comes to health inspections?

This week's Restaurant Report Card features John Holly's Asian Bistro in Lone Tree and  and Don Juan Mexican Restaurant in La Salle. Both of those establishments received 'Fs.'

The 'A' this week went to Gray's Cafe in Ault.

How restaurants appear on our Report Card

Restaurant Report Card airs on FOX31 Denver News at 9 each Friday night and it features health inspections in the city and county of Denver, Jefferson County, Weld County and restaurants under the jurisdiction of the Tri-County Health Department. The Tri-County Health Department includes Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas counties.

HEIDI HEMMATAn 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 critical violations on their most recent regular inspection and five critical violations on the previous regular 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 perfect regular inspections in a row by awarding them an A.
