***Be sure to read the information at the end of this article about how the inspection process reporting works.

When re-inspections are posted on the Southern Nevada Health District website we will share them and update this article.   If any of the establishments contact us and want to comment, we will share those as well.     The SNHD website is 

The SNHD also has an APP where you can check recent inspections.  This is not as robust as the website but is a nice, quick way to check the latest inspection results for an establishment you may planning to dine at.  Remember though, inspection results are not posted in real time.  You can look for the most recent Grade on the certificate posted at the restaurant (as required).

*** About the SNHD 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 view-able.
