A Quiet Departure At Buffet City?

It appears that the contents of the popular Buffet City are quietly being hauled away.

Several Aisan Males were hauling boxes down a ramp at the rear exit of Buffet City, and loading them into the Van, and the SUV pictured below.

Jerome, Illinois may not see the return of Buffet City to operation. Buffet City was closed last week after a federal immigration raid resulted in the arrest of sixteen employees, including one owner. Buffet City was recently voted 2006 Best Buffet in Springfield by Illinois Times readers.

I can't believe they shut Buffet City down. That and the small Indian restraunt across the street were two of the best places to eat in Springfield in my opinion. Sad to see it gone.

Time to build a large wall around Jerome to keep the illegals out.

JP, that photo of the van is a little pixelated. If you want, I can show you the proper technique on focusing and croping sometime. :)

Makes me wonder if they're going to simply relocate the operation to another town and start over with a new owner and new illegals. Like a little franchise.
