La Roca Mexican Restaurant in Nitro received seven critical and four non-critical violations.

Health inspectors said an employee didn't wash his or her hands after handling dirty dishes and before touching clean dishes. They also witnessed an employee cutting a tomato with his or her bare hands. Cheese was being heated at improper temperatures. La Roca received a good rating.

Charleston eatery Rio Grande had four and eight non-critical violations. Inspectors found mold growing in the ice maker. They also said food items in the refrigerator weren't properly date marked. Rio Grande cleaned up and got a good rating.

Our Clean Kitchen of the Week Award goes to Mi Cocina De Amor on Charleston's East End. Owner Frank Gonzales refers to his newest location as Little Mi Cocina because it is built on a quick service model, which accentuates lunch.

The Washington Street East restaurant sells three dishes that the Bigley Avenue location does not. Mexican chicken wings, tortas (a Mexican sandwich) and Sonoran dogs (Mexican-inspired hot dogs) are sold exclusively at Little Mi Cocina.
