With our fast-paced lives, going out to eat in Tyler, Texas isn't just a luxury, it's a necessity that just about everyone is thankful for. Grabbing a quick bite from a gas station convenience store or something while hitting up a drive-thru is pretty much a common occurrence in our daily lives. Even eating out at a full-service restaurant is a necessity sometimes. While eating out we assume that our food is being prepared and served to us safely and healthily.

NET Health restaurant inspectors are out there making sure restaurants and those in charge of operating them are serving food safely to the public. If the restaurant is out of compliance, NET Health takes corrective actions and gives our recommendations to the manager and owners so they will be compliant with all requirements.

While looking at the inspection reports from the previous month, one Smith County restaurant had its permit suspended until they could correct the many issues they had happening on the day the inspector dropped in.

Restaurants are accustomed to these routine inspections and work hard to maintain cleanliness and follow all established recommendations when it comes to food safety. Many restaurants received NO DEMERITS and received a perfect score on their latest inspection. Here are those restaurants that had PERFECT SCORES and no demerits:

  • La Sonorense - 11811 Hwy. 64, Tyler
  • Lucy's Mexican Food - 614 E Valentine St., Tyler
  • Esprezio - 17968 FM 2493, Flint
