LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Every week Lubbock health inspectors check out the cleanliness of local kitchens to make sure they’re keeping clean for you and your family. Then, we bring you the good and bad.

This week we have some newcomers on the menu - not just to the list but to the Hub City as well.
