HEALTH CODE VIOLATIONS AT A POPULAR RESTAURANT. THE BUFFALO WILD WINGS AT 41st AND SHERIDAN VOLUNTARILY CLOSED TO TAKE CARE OF THIS. KITTY HIGGINS LOOKED A LITTLE BIT DEEPER. SHE IS REPORTING LIVE.REPORTER: THE TULSA HEALTH DEPARTMENT SAYS WHEN THEY GOT HERE, THERE WAS NO HOT WATER. YOU NEED IT FOR MANY THINGS BUT ONE OF THEM IS FOR WASHING HANDS. I WAS GOING TO GO SIT IN THE BAR. I CAUGHT UP WITH THIS CUSTOMER AS HE WAS LEAVING. THE WAITRESS SAID THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF WATER. A HEALTH CODE VIOLATION CAUSED THEM TO VOLUNTARILY CLOSED. I LOOKED IN THERE AND THEY WERE MOPPING AND STOOLS WERE TURNED UPSIDE DOWN AND SHE SAID SOME KIND OF PIPE BROKE. IS A DAM WITH THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT. HOT WATER IS CRUCIAL. SHE SAYS IT IS CRITICAL FOR CUTTING THROUGH GREECE AND BACK AREA AND CLEANING HANDS. IS THERE ANY WAY THAT CUSTOMERS NEED TO KNOW. THEY ARE PUT AT RISK FOR SURE BUT HOPEFULLY NOTHING HAPPENED. THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT SAYS THAT WILL WORK WITH RESTAURANTS WHO SELF-REPORT THAT THEY LET YOU KNOW? WE DID NOT HEAR FROM BUFFALO WILD WINGS . A PATRON CALLED WITH A TIP. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG THEY WERE WITHOUT HOT WATER. I TRIED TO TALK TO A MANAGER. I FOUND OUT 13 DAYS AGO 16 VIOLATIONS WERE FOUND, INCLUDING USING BARE HANDS IN CONTACT WITH READY TO EAT FOOD. THEY WERE ISSUED TO WARNINGS. THE CUSTOMER IS NOT WORRIED. I DON’T THINK IT IS A BIG DEAL. IF IT WERE TWO DAYS WITHOUT HOT WATER AT THE BIGGER ISSUE. THE RESTAURANT IS INSPECTED FOUR TIMES EVERY YEAR. EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE 16 VIOLATIONS FOUND, THE RESTAURANT WAS STILL FOUND COMPLIANT. IT HAS BEEN FOUND COMPLIANT AND ALL OF THE OTHER INSPECTIONS WE COULD FIND DATING BACK TO 20
