Clean Plates allows you to look up food safety inspection reports for the past several years in Philadelphia and Bucks County. Data for the project was obtained from the food safety offices in the city and county (posted within one day).

Any inspection represents only a snapshot of conditions that are constantly changing; a pattern over time may suggest more than one good or bad report. The city explains the basics of inspection reports here.
