Hear about how restaurants in Lexington end up on probation by Fayette County Health Department's environmental health coordinator Skip Castleman and supervisor Luke Mathis.

As of early May, there were about 180 restaurants and food service providers on probation, with 23 added between March 11 and May 9. The Herald-Leader plans to update readers periodically on restaurants that are on the list. You can also search by restaurant in the Herald-Leader’s online database of inspection.

NOTE: The health department’s online database was last updated on April 9. Inspections after that date have not been added to publicly available records.

At least 15 food service establishments came off the probation list after passing inspections including Lexington Country Club, Tekka Grill & Sushi, Tortilleria Ramirez, Asian Too, Bluefire Bar and Grill, Core Life Eatery, Lee’s Garden, Logan’s Roadhouse on Rojay Drive, caterers Lundy’s of Lexington, McAlister’s Deli, Tolly Ho, Rodeway Inn, Shell-Estepp’s Food Mart Deli, Waffle House on Plaudit Place and Wildcat Market.

One restaurant that had been on probation closed: Detroit Coney Island, which had been under different operators after the longtime owners retired, was torn down to make way for an auto repair shop.

Since 2015, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department has placed restaurants and food service providers on probation when they fail an inspection with a score of 84 or lower, or when they have a critical violation that cannot be immediately remedied. Inspections are a snapshot of a restaurant or food-service establishment at a particular time but the health department uses the probation list to target those places most likely to pose a health risk.

Restaurants come off probation after they pass two consecutive regular inspections without any critical violations. Critical violations are those deemed by the FDA to have the highest potential to affect the public health adversely, such as a lack of hand-washing or improper dish sanitizing.

Restaurants on probation are inspected three times a year instead of two; the increased scrutiny is designed to catch potential health hazards, said Luke Mathis, team leader for environmental health.

Here are the restaurants currently on probation, when they were placed on probation and why, and their latest scores as of April 9, according to the health department.
