Despite reporting Mid-South restaurants' health inspection scores every Thursday on Andy's Restaurant Scorecard, I continue to meet viewers who don't know restaurants are required to post those scores, whether it's Tennessee, Mississippi or Arkansas.
Establishments must post those scores someplace where customers can see them: the entrance, cash register, bar, etc.
If they don't, it's a health code violation.
Mississippi's health department uses a letter-grade system: A, B, C. No failures. They are white reports with large, green grades. Restaurants typically frame them for public inspection.
The restaurant inspectors of the Arkansas Department of Health don't employ a grading system at all. They just list the violations.
