  Ben's Chili Bowl on U Street NW will be closed for several days to make repairs to the restaurant's plumbing system.  

Ben's Chili Bowl owners got an unexpected surprise this morning: the discovery of plumbing problems in their decades-old building that will close the restaurant for several days, NBC Washington reports.

Ben's owners told NBC that work started this morning, and the repairs could close the famed shop until the end of the week. Ben's Next Door, the lounge next door to the casual carryout chili joint, will remain open.

The restaurant has resided on U Street NW since 1958, and has a location at Nationals Park. The home of D.C.'s signature half-smoke sausage also recently opened a location at the Washington Redskin's Fedex Field.
