Restaurant Inspections

Boulder County Public Health staff work with food facilities by providing both consultations and regulatory inspections. Facilities are scored according to the Colorado Retail Food Codes and earn a rating of Excellent, Good, Fair, Marginal or Unacceptable based on observations during the regulatory inspection.

Critical violations, or those violations that are more likely to cause a foodborne illness, are assigned a higher point value than less critical or non-critical violations.

Inspections Are a Snapshot

One inspection may not represent the overall, long-term food safety practices of a facility. On any given day, a restaurant may have greater or fewer violations than noted in the most recent regulatory inspection rating.
