Health inspectors described violations and corresponding scores in reports. Restaurants with a score greater than 30 must take corrective action within 48 hours.
According to the database, two restaurants fit into this category in October and November. Don Tripon on East Lancaster Avenue scored 32 points and Discount Mini Mart on Azle Avenue scored 31 points.
