In the United States, an average of 3,000 people die each year from food poisoning, an additional 128,000 require hospitalization. Furthermore, an allergy sufferer is admitted to the Emergency Room every three minutes. These numbers are startling and continue to increase each year. While Health Departments inspect establishments typically once a year, many municipalities let the business to initially fail the inspection and then allow them to simply get re-inspected a few weeks later to receive a better score. With no additional explanation, how is the consumer supposed to know how an establishment is operated on a day-to-day basis?
HDScores was created to give consumers complete transparency on food-serving establishments. The app allows users to see the actual health inspection reports given from each local jurisdiction which includes; the number of violations, the severity of those violations, and when they occurred. HDScores reports all previous inspections for the particular business, giving the consumer a historical view of where they are dining. An HDScore is represented as a simple percentage from 0%-100%, the closer to 100 the cleaner the establishment.
For over three years we have developed trusted partnerships with companies like Yelp to provide consistent data on restaurant cleanliness.
What we offer:
- A formulated HDScore for establishments which is utilized on a national basis. This score provides you an overall better understanding for cleanliness on where you are eating.
- HDScores are represented as a percentage from 0%-100%. The higher the score, the better that establishment has been at demonstrating high levels of cleanliness.
- Ability to see and search for the cleanest restaurants around you in real-time.
We are excited to announce HDScores will be free! No account, signup, or subscription will be required! Also added dark mode support.

Great concept. This would make it easier to find inspection reports, then going through the states web site. However, there are flaws. First, there are established restaurants that aren’t even on the map. Some have been there for years. Second, the reports are not up to date. The most recent reports in my local area are dated December of 2019. I can get the report from my local newspaper every two weeks! Finally, the pins are incorrect for some of the restaurant locations. When you click on them and it gives one address and the look at the street the pin is on, they are not the same. One of them was a mile off.
I agree with a previous reviewer that maybe you should solicit the delivery companies for funds to help make this app better. It would be beneficial to both of you!
This app is so useful. My friends and I all use it when we’re deciding where to eat. A lot of the places we typically used to eat at have surprised us with either how low or high their HD Score is. Definitely a great reference when choosing where to grab a bite or drink.
Not free, reason for not being free is not reasonable
You can’t say your reason for not being free is based upon being unbiased. You’re reporting scores not making them yourself. You’re an in between between a reporting agency and the public. Instead of worrying about the temptation to be biased if you had advertisers you could just follow your own ethical guidelines. The reason it’s not free is lazy. it’s an excuse to not the work to get advertisers. You have a great idea behind this app, don’t let it tank because you’re being stubborn.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
