Our Star Rating System

We review many different types of products, services, locations and entertainment here at Offensively Patriotic. It’s not really possible to rate music on the same categories as restaurants, so here you can see what each rating means and how we rate that product or service. You’ll also find an explanation on the categories we rate them on.

Each rated category is given a score of 0 through 10 with half points possible. The final score is an average of those scores.

Always keep in mind that reviews are subjective, so you may disagree with our review scores.
