The Cook County Department of Public Health inspects all the restaurants in Northlake.

The food establishments are inspected two times a year, more often if necessary. The rating is determined by inspecting 45 different food preparation and safety items. Some of the items are more critical to health and safety than others.

If an establishment gets a low rating, they have 24 hours to correct it. Then the Cook County Department of Public Health re-inspects to make sure they have made the necessary changes.

The following ratings apply:

90% or above is equivalent to an A rating

80% or above is equivalent to a B rating

70% or above is equivalent to a C rating

70% or below is failing

These may change after new inspections. You can review a complete health inspection report, or at City Hall in Northlake. Health inspections are conducted by the Cook County Health Department.

If you have a complaint about one of the restaurants in Northlake, please complete the Cook County Department of Public Health complaint form.
