Crazy Chicken, 4200 Chino Hills Parkway Suite 210, Chino Hills
- Closed: 15th of November
- Degree: Not graded (last was 90 / A on October 12th)
- Reason: Rodent infestation. An inspector first visited on November 2nd in response to a complaint about rodents. The manager was aware of the problem and agreed to close it. The inspector also saw liquid waste pouring from the ice machine’s drain pipe onto the floor. The restaurant called pest control that caught a few rats in the ceiling and fixed the plumbing so the restaurant was allowed to reopen the next day. But during a follow-up on November 15, the inspector found dozens of fresh droppings, including in a box of sealed take-away cups, on boxes of soda syrup, and under the grill. The person in charge said the pest control still comes every few days and they recently caught another rat.
- Opened again: After pest control caught four more rodents on November 16, a hole in one of the outer walls was closed and the facility cleaned. The restaurant planned to have a daily pest control service for the next week.

About this list
This list will be published online on Fridays. Any updates when restaurants reopen will be added to the list for the next week.
All food establishments in the county are routinely checked to make sure they meet health regulations. A facility loses four points for every critical violation and one to three points for minor violations. An A grade (90 to 100 points) is considered “generally superior”, a B grade (80 to 89) as “generally acceptable” and a C grade (70 to 79) as “generally not acceptable “And needs a follow-up inspection. A facility will be temporarily closed if it is below 70 or has a critical violation that cannot be resolved immediately.
