Does anyone know why the Super China Buffet next to Kroger on St of Franklin closed down?

Actually, I haven't been in there in several years. If you must know the truth, I stopped going when I saw the roaches falling out of the walls leading into the bathrooms. I was only wondering if maybe the HD had finally caught up with them.

One day, 4 or 5 years ago, I went there to eat. I told them what I wanted to drink and headed to the bathroom to wash my hands. It was horrible, there was feces smeared on the walls and in the floor. I got the hell out of there and had lost my appetite. It may have been an isolated incident but after that I started noticing how filthy the place was.. I've known of 3 different people that got food poison there, common denominator in the 3 was that they'd all eaten the egg drop soup.

When that place first opened, I loved it. It gradually went downhill and I understand why it's closed now..

Same thing with Empire Buffet on N. Roan.
Used to eat there often a few years ago when I worked up the street. The place was always clean, they had a ton of stuff to choose from including a hibachi bar and sushi bar.
The food was always hot and fresh looking and they had the cutest little Asian honey at the register.
I stopped in the other day for the first time in a long time and man-o-man what a disappointment, I won't be going back.

Oh and while we're talkin bad Chinese places, if you're out the Jonesborough way NEVER eat at No. 1 Chinese Restaurant (across the street from Food City). Place made me sick as a dog the 3 times I tried to eat there.

I really hate to hear about Empire going down hill, that was a great place to eat at one time. As for No.1 Buffet in JBO, I've gotten sick after eating there, also. I've grown weary of peel and eat shrimp at ALL buffets now, and I won't touch egg drop soup. I don't think these places take enough care in protecting highly perishable foods and worry more about profits and reserving stuff as much as they can. Since moving to MO, I've had to travel 30 miles to find a good place to eat Chinese and so far so good..

Both places were kind of hit and miss and overpriced. I always felt like I was taking a chance eating there. Just because they claim to be a Chinese restaurant doesn't mean you are getting real Chinese food there. On the bright side, there is a new Korean restaurant in downtown JC called the Korean Taco House. I am hooked on the great food there, and no, I don't work there! I suggest you all try it.
