Daniel's Restaurant in Regency Hit with 19 Demerits

Laughlin, Nevada

Daniel's Restauarnt
Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD)- Inspection Result
Inspection date:   9-11-2015

Daniel's is located in the *Regeny Casino in Laughlin.   

The Southern Nevada Health District Restaurant Inspection report posted for Daniel's shows the restaurant received a B grade with 19 demerits during the inspection.  

Demerits were for violations such as keeping food wholesome, not spoiled, contaminated, or adulterated,  proper temperatures, and keeping food protected from potential contamination. See the list below.   

This was their first inspection in well over a year.  At least according to what is listed on the SNHD website.  Previous inspections showing were all A grades, but not without some demerits. 

This information was taken from what is posted on the SNHD website (as of 9-11-15).  Note, they may have already had a re-inspection as there is a lag time between when they occur and when they are posted.   Every establishment is required to post their current SNHD certificate showing the grade they are operating under.  As you can see in the list of violations, that was one requirement Daniel's already was not adhering to.    

While we have not frequented Daniel's personally in quite some time, there have been some rants and reviews in the Laughlin Buzz Facebook Group about issues going on.   Daniel's has had some great food in the past and have some very good specials and prices.  They even won Best Burger in this year's Best of Laughlin voting.   Hopefully, this latest inspection is wake up call for the management and owners of Daniel's. 

*Our understanding is that Daniel's is a tenant operating in the Regency Casino.

About the inspection process: 
An "A" grade is the top grade an establishment can receive.  Generally if any grade less than an 
A is received the restaurant can and does have a re-inspection shortly thereafter after correcting 
any violations.  Keep in mind there is a lag time between when the inspections are performed and 
when they appear on the Southern Nevada Health District Website.  A restaurant may have been 
inspected or re-inspected (in the case of a low grade) since the data was posted.  
When a re-inspection is done the list of violations/demerits from the prior low grade is no longer viewable.
All restaurants are required to have their latest grade certificate displayed for the public to see.  
If you don't see one, ask.

Note:  We do update this article when new/re-inspections are posted.
