Ben's Chili Bowl temporarily closed

A Ben's employee says the U Street institution will be open again by the weekend.

Just as the weather has gotten cold and a nice bowl of chili would hit the spot, D.C.'s go-to place for chili will be temporarily closed due to building damage.

Ben's Chili Bowl at 1213 U Street NW will be closed due to plumbing problems, according to a worker.

According to a tweet, the repairs might "take a few days."
