Jacksonville, Fla. - The China Super Buffet is located in a large shopping center not far from I-95 on Dunn Avenue in Jacksonville. It's popular for the low price lunch and dinner buffet.

Blue crab from an unapproved source

Gaskets with slime and mold
The handwash sink being used as a dump sink

Manager Tom Yarborough told us he was happy to see us, "We're glad to see y'all come in here it keeps everyone on their toes."
He then gave us a tour of the kitchen showing us all violations are fixed.
We asked, "What would you like to say to your customers about this report?" Tom responded, "They all know our food is clean and no one is getting sick here and they know we have the freshest, best food on the market."
