RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Here's a look at some favorite restaurants that had some critical violations on their state health inspections, and what they did to fix them, in this NBC12 Restaurant Report.

We begin in Chesterfield at Peking Restaurant, 12730 Jefferson Davis Highway. The restaurant had 5 critical violations, including that raw beef was being stored over cooked chicken, a violation because raw meat juice could drip and contaminate food below. The restaurant had them all corrected for a follow-up inspection two weeks later. A manager tells us they've been operating for 20 years and keep the restaurant very clean.

And moving to Hanover, Imperial Chinese Restaurant at 117 North Washington Street had the same problem, storing raw chicken, beef, shrimp and scallops in a way the could cause cross contamination. That was one of the restaurant's 5 critical violations. But the violations were also corrected in a follow-up inspection the next day. Imperial Chinese had perfect scores on two prior inspections.

This week's NBC12 Hall of Fame Award goes to Qdoba Mexican Grill at 9460 West Broad Street in Henrico. This Mexican restaurant has earned perfect scores on five of their last seven state health inspections.
