In this week's Behind the Kitchen Door report, we start with Shoney's in Charleston, which received three critical and eight non-critical violations. Health inspectors said they found food build-up between the equipment. They also witnessed cross contamination between eggs and cooked food. Shoney's received a good rating.

Leonoro's Restaurant in Charleston had two critical violations and five non-critical. Cross contamination between eggs and cooked food was spotted. Health inspectors said the refrigerator's fan guard was dirty. Leonoro's cleaned up and got an excellent rating.

Our Clean Kitchen of the Week Award goes to Paula Vega Cakes and Cupcakes in Huntington. Cupcakes at the Huntington shop cost $2.50 apiece. Your tenth cupcake is free with the loyalty card. On Thursday's Paula Vega Cakes and Cupcakes offer a gluten-free selection.

"We usually just do one flavor so anyone who has celiac disease or allergies to gluten they know to come in on Thursday's and we will have a cupcake for them," Vega said.

Vega quit her full-time job as a nurse and opened her own cupcake shop nearly four years ago.
