KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A popular grill and sports bar turned up with some bad health inspection grades this week.

The places that failed their health inspections just missed a passing grade, which the health department considers 70 and above.

Low scores:

Oskie's Grill, 155 West End Ave - Grade: 68

The inspector writes the food slicer was dirty.

Food was found stored on the floor, but there were shelves and that's where the food belonged.

For some strange reason brasso was found stored with food. The brasso, which is a chemical, needs to be stored in a separate area.

House of Dragon, 1907 Cumberland Avenue - Grade: 69

The inspector found that the toilets in the bathroom needed to be cleaned.

She also watched an kitchen worker forgot to wash his hands as he started preparing food.

Icearium stand, 110 S. Watt Road - Grade: 69

Here, the inspector found mold growing in the refrigerator.

Hand sanitizer was found stored on the food preparation counter, wrong place.

And again, a problem with the food slicer - this time the tomato slicer was dirty.

Top scores:

With hundreds of kids at Camp Wesley Woods in Townsend this week, their kitchen was inspected and rated a 100.

Let's look at the restaurants now.

  • Krystal, 7215 Strawberry Plains Pike - Grade: 99
  • Chick-Fil-A, 7565 Mountain Grove Road - Grade: 97
  • Hardee's, 3318 Chapman Hwy - Grade: 95
  • Domino's, 7419 Middlebrook Pk - Grade: 95
  • Waffle House, 7414 Strawberry Plains - Grade: 95
  • Newk's, 9261 Kingston Pike - Grade: 95
  • Subway, 6217 Riverview Crossing - Grade: 94
  • Taco Bell, 4854 N. Broadway - Grade: 93

Restaurants are inspected every six months and employees are encouraged to attend free health inspection classes conducted every month by local health departments.
