Crazy Buffet II closed by health officials


Crazy Buffet II on Evansville's west side has been shut down by the health department.

Workers at the restaurant called our newsroom around 4:35 p.m. Wednesday to say the health department had put a sign on their door and closed down their business. 

The inspection report lists the violations as:

  • Improper cooling method for potentially hazardous food product
  • Improper storage of raw animal food product in walk-in and reach-in coolers
  • Stored food items lacking covering
  • Sanitizer for wiping cloths too strong
  • Food items in sink storage area not elevated at least six inches off floor
  • Individual dispensing utensils not provided to prevent cross-contamination
  • Hand sink in need of repair
  • Improper storage of wet sanitizer wiping cloths
  • Seal for freezer walk-in door in disrepair
  • Handled scoop not being used for dispensing bulk food product

Earlier Wednesday, Crazy Buffet on the east side announced they would serve free meals on Thanksgiving.

Last week they were briefly shut down by the health department. They say all of their mistakes have been fixed. 

Crazy Buffet II on the west side is on Pearl Drive. 

We are still working to find out if there is any connection with the east side Crazy Buffet. 

We were not able to reach the Vanderburgh County Health Department Wednesday because it was after office hours.
