(WHNT) - Kentucky Fried Chicken too cool to pass the health test, motor oil sandwiched beside food you eat, and a Mexican eatery with one violation after another.

In this week's Restaurant Ratings, we have the dish on who's not keeping a clean kitchen.
Marshall County health inspectors recently visited Martin's Market on Highway 69 in Arab.  Gas takes a backseat to their popular deli and Hunt Brother's pizza.  Martin's Market scored a 69 after inspectors found motor oil hanging out next to food.

In Boaz, the Colonel was calling our name.  We checked the score at Kentucky Fried Chicken at 1254 U.S. Highway 431 in Boaz.  Health inspectors stumbled upon fried chicken, below the required temperature, and a heat timer was nowhere to found.  There was also a dirty can opener.  This KFC location scored 79.

A Mexican eatery on Brindlee Mountain also kept health inspectors on their toes.  Sierra's Mexicanisimo in Arab scored a 67.  Health inspectors found un-labeled cleaner bottles stored with towels, rice held at 95 degrees, cheese products held at 50 degrees, plus drainage issues with the ice bin in the bar.  When inspectors had questions, there was no one in charge to talk to.  These are five serious violations.

All three locations have another surprise visit from health inspectors coming soon.  

As for our Golden Spoon award, Nothing Bundt Cakes made the health inspectors' mouths water!   The dessert lovers' paradise, located at 2710 Carl T. Jones Drive in Huntsville, scored a 97.
