13 Metro Phoenix Restaurants Scored a "D" from the County Health Department in March

Last month more than a dozen local restaurants -- everything from supermarkets to small, independent spots to restaurants that are part of giant, national chains -- failed to pass county health department inspections. And if we had to pick out a trend among the offending spots, it would be a lack of knowledge. Several of the restaurants that make this month's list of failing restaurants received a "D" grade in part because employees and, at times, management failed to demonstrate knowledge about food safety practices. In any case, be sure to check this list before you head out for another meal.
