Health Grades

By Cheryl Thurston

Health GradesOctober is gone and we are on to the holidays. Many of us will find ourselves out shopping soon with our minds on the treasures we can find to share with others. Undoubtedly, we will hunger from our efforts and we’ll look around for something to eat. This area has a lot of different choices now, with new restaurants on the way. If you’re like me, you want to know how clean the kitchen is whenever you eat out, whatever the reason.

I’m grateful for the people who work for the public’s safety, like those who perform sanitation inspections at all of the county’s eating establishments. These wonderful people keep the standards high and make a public report every month. Thank you Bladen County Health Department. BladenOnline.com publishes that report to you as a community service, and is honored by your readership. So, thank you too, BladenOnline.com readers. Check the list below for the eateries that were inspected in October. Bon Appitité.
