The cleanest eating establishment in Miami-Dade County this week is a Kentucky Fried Chicken in North Miami.
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation issues a list every week of restaurants, including drive-through windows, food trucks and hot dog stands, that have received no safety or sanitation violations within the last year.
Violations range from the basic category – improperly displaying a current license or having unauthorized people in the kitchen – to high-priority violations, such as getting food from an unapproved source or the presence of rodents or insects.
Each food service establishment would have been inspected at least three times, said Sandi Poreda, a spokeswoman for the agency.
The weekly list is highly varied. This week, along with KFC #X975044 at 701 NW 119th St., the cleanest eateries in Florida included a hot dog stand and a Hilton Grand Vacations pool bar in Orlando.
“We really see a wide range of restaurants make this list each week,” Poreda said.
