The St. Charles County Department of Public Health monitors more than 1,300 food service providers in St. Charles County. (The City of St. Peters conducts its own inspections.) Routine inspections are conducted by specialists with the department for proper food safety procedures and are scored by deducting points from a starting score of 100.

  1. Not scoring a 100 and knowing these audits exist is horrifying in regard to COVID times. Even the majority of 100s cover up things and with COVID nastiness, that automagically means all 100s are 90s. So some of these are quite disgusting. I do need to say that while I am all for international cuisine, perhaps the city issuing permits to these places should have greater checks & balances in these areas? Anything in the 80s is appalling! And there are plenty of big cities with 100% ratings for international cuisine. This tells me we should be advising incomers better… avoid setting them up to fail. I’m torn, but it’s all gross.
