The pizza buffet restaurant's last day was Sunday.


CiCi's Pizza, a pizza buffet restaurant on the northwest side, closed on Sunday, the second time since the chain’s arrival in Tucson five years ago that it has shuttered.

CiCi’s, popular for its $5 all-you-can-eat buffet deal, opened in March 2009 then closed in January 2010. Three months later, it opened again, this time under new management.

Tucson restaurant officials on Monday would not comment on the closing, referring questions to corporate officials who could not be reached.

The Texas-based CiCi’s chain has nearly 500 restaurants in 34 states.
