Vigo County Health Department closes Golden Corral; restaurant reopens

Staff report
The Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — A Terre Haute restaurant was back in business Wednesday after a brief closure due to Vigo County Health Department violations.

The Golden Corral, 10 W. Johnson Drive near Honey Creek Mall, was closed by the health department Tuesday for what environmental health supervisor Travella Myers called a “sanitizing” issue.

“They were shut down yesterday and they were re-opened today,” she said Wednesday afternoon, noting a complaint had been issued regarding dirty dishes.

Health inspectors who returned Wednesday however found the restaurant “almost immaculate” and it was then re-opened, she said.

“It must have been out of this world,” Myers said of the turn-around, noting the restaurant was returned to operational status upon the new inspection.

The general manager for the Golden Corral declined to comment Wednesday and a call to his supervisor was not returned.

From the look of it Mom wasn't the reason that a lot of peeps abandoned this forum. It was all the flamers. Mom was just an easy target for them.

If you don't have something constructive to say, then don't say anything.

Didn't the Golden Corral recently offer a free meal to our Veterens and active soldiers? That would be a disgrace that these soldiers past and present survive war and be served a big dose of food poisening at home. I'm just saying!

Any other Golden Corral I have every been in was pretty nice but that one is gross! I think that when these type of things happen the 1st one to get fired should be the manager and the obvious message to the new manager would be don't do what they did or didn't do! If it keeps happening then keep firing until you get the right person in place that cares enough not to get fired, duhhhhh!

In all fairness to the Corral.....

If a restaurant is on the Vigo County's shyt list, they will be hassled constantly. I heard that they shut them down once just because there were some dirty baking dishes left of the floor??

What does it matter if they are going to wash them anyways??? You never hear about the all the numbered chinese buffets getting cited. I can guarantee you their kitchens are about as nasty as it gets!!
Oh yeah

By the way, the chinese restaurants ARE nasty! They leave the food on the buffet all night. No heat, no refrigeration. That is just one small thing they do.

Number one reason not to go to the Golden Corral is that they do not have any Golden Men or Women to run it. The people either do not wish to be in Terre Haute or they have no ability to do selective hiring for the right people with the right skills to turn it around. Two years ago they had people from Florida, Iowa, Kentucky...
Amazing no locals in Indiana or Illinois to help out.
