The site is very flexible. You can search for a location just like you would on Google. A site will return results based on what you searched. The location may already have a rating and helpful reviews. If it doesn’t, be sure to add a review once you’ve visited!

0: Not applicable
1: Failed – Completely inaccessible
2: Poor – Limited accessibility
3: Okay – Acceptable but 1 or 2 minor issues
4: Good – All criteria acceptable
5: Great – Truly exceptional in every way
Evaluating a site is easy! Just search for a location with as much or as little information as you know (just like you would do on Google). There are 5 main areas to evaluate.

Once inside a business, if the aisles are too small, or there is no room to get around when the restaurant is busy, that is good information to know before getting to a location.
