Five firms get top honors
The Toledo Lucas County Health Department has named five local food-serving establishments among the 50 Top-Rated Food Establishments in Lucas County as far as compliance with food safety regulations, kitchen cleanliness and “a continued and conscientious effort to maintain a clean and safe operation.”

The recognition was determined by the food safety staff of the health department, which inspects all food serving establishments in the county.

The five are: Big Apple Deli and Oregon City Schools, Oregon; Michael’s Café and Real Seafood, East Toledo; and Northwood Vending, Northwood.
