Dunbar Middle School at 2010 E. 26th Street and O.L. Slaton Middle School at 1600 32nd street both made a perfect score as well.

On to four restaurants in town dishing up a plate of perfection. "We recognize we have a clean place, clean environment. We're proud of that," says Giorgio's Pizza owner George Shadid.
