Chicago Food Inspections

$179 / year

This dataset contains the restaurant inspections and other food establishments in Chicago from January 1, 2010 to the present.

Complexity

This information is derived from inspections of restaurants and other food establishments in Chicago. Inspections are performed by staff from the Chicago Department of Public Health’s Food Protection Program using a standardized procedure. The results of the inspection are inputted into a database, then reviewed and approved by a State of Illinois Licensed Environmental Health Practitioner (LEHP).

Chicago is home to 16,000 food establishments like restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, wholesalers, lunchrooms, mobile food vendors and more. It is done by inspecting food businesses, responding to complaints and food recalls. Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) also offers education to food service managers.

Effective July 1, 2018, the City of Chicago implements new requirements that all food service establishments must follow. These requirements are based on the latest science and conform to federal guidelines and to state and local laws. These new requirements include the need to establish some written policies and procedures, participate in certain trainings, label certain foods, and install hand sinks in certain areas.

Disclaimer: Attempts have been made to minimize any and all duplicate inspection reports. However, the dataset may still contain such duplicates and the appropriate precautions should be exercised when viewing or analyzing these data. The result of the inspections (pass, pass with conditions or fail) as well as the violations noted are based on the findings identified and reported by the inspector at the time of the inspection, and may not reflect the findings noted at other times.
