Back Alley Diner – The photos that prompted a 75 Health Inspection Score *UPDATED*

We recently received some photos that seem to have prompted an inspection by the Health Department for Back Alley Diner, located at 217 Arcade Alley, a frequent place that we visit when on that side of the river in downtown.

An inspection on 04/20/17 resulted in a critical score of 75, and a follow-up score of 96 on 04/28/17, after they had time and notice to correct the Critical Violations. The question remains of just how long conditions have been this bad at Back Alley Diner (B.A.D.) – whose motto is “BAD IS GOOD”? The most previous restaurant inspection score we were able to locate (via City Data) was in June of 2015, which even then also included ‘repeated’ ‘critical violations’ (previous scores at end of post).

*UPDATED 11AM: Added copy of report received by Health Department, below.

Here’s the Violations, in detail:
