PHOENIX (DIRTY DINING) -- The last thing you want when you go to eat out this weekend is to end up sick to your stomach after visiting your favorite restaurant. That's why each week, Dirty Dining lets you know who's keeping a clean kitchen. (And who's not!)

[SPECIAL SECTION: Dirty Dining]

Every week, CBS 5 News is sent a list of restaurants that have been recently inspected by Maricopa County's Environmental Services Department. Restaurants with some of the highest numbers of "risk factors," considered as major health code violations by inspectors, are selected. For more details on the restaurant inspection scoring system, visit Maricopa County's website.
