The Waltham Health Department recently inspected many of the city's restaurants. 

The reports are public record and if inspectors find issues, they follow up with future re-inspections to assure the issue is resolved. If the Board of Health finds repeated problems, it can call them for a hearing with the board.

-Kentucky Fried Chicken, 501 Main St.: No issues found during a Nov. 4. inspection.

-Dunkin Donuts 859 Main St.: An Nov. 4 inspection ordered a person in charge to be on the premises. Inspectors found nobody was in charge. 

-Dunkin Donuts, 870 Lexington St.: A Nov. 4 inspection found no violations.

-New York Deli:, 47 Lexington St.: A Nov. 4 inspection found no issues.

-Bullets Bar & Grill: A Nov. 26 inspection found no issues.

-Bison County, 275 Moody St.: A Nov. 20 inspection found no issues.

Ryan, Thank you, this report sure serves to keep our local restaurants 'on their toes'! At the other end of the spectrum, best I know there hasn't yet been any claim of a Waltham inspector being unreasonable or improper, and that needs to be monitored as well in order to best serve the public's interest.

I'm more concerned that there are so many restaurants with no violations. It is hard so believe so many are perfect. We haven't seen any major violations since Patch starting posting these, which is fine, and good news. However, it is common for restaurants to have one or more MINOR violations which would result in a follow-up a week later. We see very few here, which again is good, but it just makes me wonder if the inspector is being tough enough.

I agree Brian. Having worked many years in food service my experience was the inspection was only as good as the inspector. If its the same guy every time the restaurant figures out what areas they focus on ( i.e he always temps the walk-in cooler, but never checks the freezer etc)

Roger, The health department rotates which inspectors visit certain restaurants.
