Yelp Now Scores Restaurants On Hygiene

We all use Yelp as a source for new places to eat and use customers reviews to help decide if we really want to eat there. 

Yelp, has added new 'hygiene scores' for restaurants that will start rating them by their cleanliness.

The last thing you want to do is eat at a new place you don't know much about or you do, and it's filthy!

Restaurants have health regular inspections which leave them a score and that score distinguishes the letter they get on their store to be posted for the public. A(190-100), B(80-89), C(70-79).

Yelp, accesses these scores to help distinguish the score they'll publish. 

Restaurants aren't excited about this.  

Health inspections are also seemed to be somewhat biased depending on the inspector and how knit-picky they want to be on things at the time of the expectation.

So far, the feature is only rolling in New York, California, Texas, Illinois, and Washington, DC, but they plan on making it national.

Will you start making your choice based on Yelp hygiene reviews?
