The state Department of Health regularly inspects restaurants and food facilities.

The facilities are graded from A to C. “A” is the best. “C” is the equivalent of failing, but the inspection isn’t bad enough to merit the closure of the restaurant.

The following Lee County facilities were inspected between Oct. 5 and today. The facilities are listed as they are in the MSDH system, even if there are typos.

—- A’s —-

  • Sprint Mart (East Main)
  • Saving (East Main)
  • Auburn Super-Stop (CR 931)
  • Starbucks
  • Magnolia Manor
  • The Grazin Station (Verona)
  • Rosie’s Cookies, Cakes & Cream (Fairpark)
  • Burger King (Crosstown)
  • Papa Johns Pizza (West Main)
