Needed repairs, lack of cleanliness gets eatery 'C’ in inspection

Jerrie Whiteley
Van Alstyne Leader

Tanglewood Barnacles Sports Bar in Pottsboro got a “C” rating on its most recent inspection by the Grayson County Health Department.

The Grayson County Health Department rates restaurants and other establishments that serve food based on their adherence to codes set by the Texas Department of Health. Restaurants are given an “A,” “B,” “C” or “F” score.

An “A” means sanitarians reported no or only a few minor violations. Those with a “B” were found to have several minor violations, but nothing major. Restaurants with a “C” might have a major violation or repeat offenses, but in the inspectors’ opinions, nothing bad enough to warrant an “F.”

An “A” means sanitarians reported 10 or fewer demerits. Those with a “B” received 11-20 demerits. Restaurants with a “C” had 21-30 demerits and restaurants with “F” ratings received more than 30 demerits.

A report issued by the Grayson County Health Department said Barnacles lost points for having food that was not being kept at the proper temperature and for having food that was being used passed its “best by” date.

“The pizza prep cooler has standing water in the bottom and putrefied food debris, slime and an odor present,” the report stated. It also said that the water in the dishwasher smelled of sewage and that the kitchen needed a good scrub.

Two eateries in the area made “B” grades on their latest inspections and they are:
