These restaurants in Maricopa County were recently inspected by the Maricopa County Environmental Services Department. If you want to know more about how I determine which restaurants get published on my list, you can read about my methodology here.

Phoenix Area Restaurants That Failed

In the table below I include restaurants that received a D grade (there is no F grade) from the Environmental Services Inspector.

That means that the establishment had three or more serious violations of the health code that might result in patrons being exposed to foodborne illness. A restaurant that has its licence immediately suspended as a result of an inspection may also be included here. The management may correct the defect, and could receive a perfect inspection when the inspector returns.
