What is the name of the restaurant in the headline section with raw sewage live roaches, etc? You didn't bother to give us the name and location. All the restaurants you reviewed were in the 90s.
Deanna Allen December 05, 2012 at 07:08 PM
It's included in the violations listed under the restaurants. Pier 81 Seafood had the live roach, Little Caesars had the black mold build-up and Old House Restaurant had the sewage surfacing from the septic system.

Did Huddle House have roaches???????? Nasty? If so, why did they get a score of 90?
Deanna Allen December 05, 2012 at 07:16 PM
The scores are listed from least to greatest. While Huddle House is first on the list, with a score of 90, it wasn't one of the restaurants with a live roach, mold build-up or raw sewage. I'm going to bold those violations so they are more easily recognizable.
