Pair of restaurants under scrutiny of health department

Los Mariachis, 296 Main St., Groveport, pleads its case Tuesday before the Franklin County Board of Health. The Board, because of repeated critical violations, has proposed to suspend or revoke the restaurant's license. I'll be at that hearing, and tell you how it plays out.

The Franklin County Health Department recently issued IHOP, 40 Polaris Pkwy., Westerville, a warning letter. In its last inspection, the restaurant totaled 22 violations, including seven critical ones.

This week's Clean Plate Award goes to Grandad's Pizza and Pub, 4093 Trueman Blvd., Hilliard.
