Joy Wok Super Buffet kitchen damaged by fire Sunday
An early Sunday-morning blaze damaged the kitchen of the Joy Wok Super Buffet & Hibachi Grill in Overland Park. KCTV Channel 5 reported yesterday that a fire at the restaurant was called in at 5 a.m. The building was empty at the time. Firefighters needed about 20 minutes to get the blaze at the Chinese restaurant (named The Pitch’s Best Buffet in 2012) under control, and the building at 11920 Metcalf suffered smoke damage. The restaurant’s website says it is “temporarily closed for remodeling.” Nobody answered the restaurant’s phone this morning.
