Earlier this month, the St. Joseph County Health Department fined the restaurant $1,400 for repeat health code violations, the South Bend Tribune reports. As a result, at that time the restaurant was placed on a six-month probationary period during which inspections were increased.
Owner Ron Helms told WSBT the closure had more to do with finances than with the report from the health department.
The restaurant was open for 14 years, MNC reports.
The nearest locations are in eastern Michigan, Chicago or central Indiana.
