Are you going out to Saratoga this weekend? Maybe getting a quick bite to eat after Rivers Casino? You may want to take a look at this list first because inspection violations were just released.

I don't tend to look up restaurant inspection violations, I probably should but I naively like to believe that I can judge restaurants pretty well by how they look. After the Times Union published this article about restaurants in Albany, Schenectady & Saratoga counties, though, I may take a closer look! (You can even get a better breakdown of Saratoga County)Does this list keep you from these particular places? In no particular order, these are the top offenders:
