(WAFF) - The Kitchen Cops have been busy across north Alabama in the last week of May.  We have a fresh batch of inspections to tell you about. Before we tell you about the top performers, let's look at some of the problems.


  • Cici’s Pizza on Cox Creek Parkway in Florence scored an 80. Inspectors found spoiled vegetables in the kitchen.
  • We’re waiting for a final score on Dick Howell’s BBQ Pit in Tuscumbia. We’re told inspectors found chicken and coleslaw being held at the wrong temperature.
  • Curtis Restaurant on Highway 43 in Florence scored an 83 after the kitchen cops found chemicals in unmarked spray bottles and food at the wrong temperature.


  • Cheddar’s on University Drive scored an 84 because inspectors found food on supposedly clean utensils and plates. There were also cracked containers, backed up sinks and soap missing from other sinks.
  • Taco Mama on Providence Main earned an 87 after inspectors noted chicken and beef cooling for too long on prep tables.
  • The Asian Cuisine on Highway 72 & 31 in Athens earned an 84 thanks to dirty drink nozzles and ice machines. There were also low temperatures noted on steak and chicken.
