Yelp pages to display Fort Worth health inspection ratings

Posted March 13, 2017

Archived Content Information and links provided may no longer be accurate.

Fort Worth is making restaurant inspection scores available at the touch of a button using Yelp, where many residents already look for dining information.

The right column on Yelp now shows health inspection scores.

Food inspection reports are shown on Yelp restaurant listings along with customer reviews, hours and other information.

It’s part of Yelp’s LIVES open data program — it stands for Local Inspector Value Entry Specification — and it allows consumers to see inspection data before dropping in for a bite.

Now, when would-be diners click on a particular restaurant listing, they’ll see the typical reviews, a link to the menu, hours, price range along with the results of its latest health safety inspection.

The goal is to help people make decisions and to increase food safety in Fort Worth, said Elmer DePaula, assistant code compliance director for consumer health. “Our consumer health group strives to visit every food establishment in the city. We’re pleased that the inspection results are now readily available with greater visibility in an easy-to-access format. It adds additional value to the inspection process.”
