Glady Knight's Chicken and Waffles eatery is in a bit of hot water.

The tourist attraction on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia, failed its health inspection in a big way last week, when it got a score of 56 out of 100. The Fulton County inspectors found 15 violations at the famous restaurant.

Inspectors noted that there was not adequate "hand washing facilities supplied and accessible" at the establishment, and that those handling the food weren't washing their hands properly. The report also states that there was a door missing from one of the coolers and "heavy debris" was found on ceilings and vents.

The super low score is a bit of a surprise as the restaurant got a 94 on its health inspection this last April, local news station WSBTV reports. Fulton County Health inspectors are expected to return to Knight's eatery within 10 days of their first visit.
