In this week's Behind the Kitchen Door, Graziano's Pizza in South Charleston received seven critical and six non-critical violations.

Health inspectors said an employee didn't wash his or her hands before serving food. They also witnessed hot and cold food being stored at incorrect temperatures. Graziano's Pizza received a good rating.

Casa Garcia Mexican Restaurant in South Charleston had five critical violations and eight non-critical.

Cooked chicken was being cooled at an incorrect temperature, and the can opener and ice tea nozzle were dirty. Casa Garcia cleaned up and got an excellent rating.

Ponderosa Steakhouse in Elview received the Clean Kitchen of the Week Award. The steakhouse has been in the Elkview community for 25 years, but it wasn't until two years ago that it received a new identity.

"This is a great honor for us," said Tony Sheley, one of the managers. "You know we work very hard at getting our kitchen clean and keeping it right for our customers. So this is good. This is good for us."

The most popular items at Ponderosa are the steaks, buffet and crab legs, which are served on Fridays.
