The City of North Richland Hills inspects all food establishments within our city limits including full service restaurants, fast food, grocery stores, convenience stores, child care facilities and temporary food service events.
The inspection results are reported using a demerit system in accordance with the Texas Food Establishment Rules. These rules were recently updated, including a more comprehensive scoring mechanism. Beginning in March 2016, the NRH Consumer Health Division began implementing the new scoring system; some restaurant scores may appear to be slightly elevated due to points accrued based on new rules.
Inspection scores can range from 0 to 100 demerits. 0 indicates a perfect score, while 30 indicates serious conditions that need to be corrected. It is important to remember that scores represent only a snapshot of the facility at the time the inspector arrived. The conditions could be better or worse while an inspector is not present.
New restaurant scores are posted on this website each month. Click on the Notify Me button on the left side of this page to sign up for email or text notifications when new scores are posted.
As a convenience to the public, a QR Code is printed on all health permits in North Richland Hills. Smart phone users with a QR Code Reader app can scan the QR Code on the health permit at the restaurant to quickly access the most recent health inspection scores from their smart phone.
