A long-time diner closed its doors today after 32 years in business.
Arlington Diner, at 2921 S. Glebe Road in the Arlington Ridge Shopping Center, will now no longer serve its all-day breakfast — nor lunch or dinner. On Thursday morning, workers were in the building removing various appliances and other fixtures and fittings.
A sign on the door of the eatery announced the closure.
To our beloved customers,
The crew of Arlington Diner wants to thank you for 32 years of friendship and great memories.
We regret to inform you that we will be closing our doors on May 25, 2017.
We will miss you but we will remember you fondly.
It has been a pleasure serving you! Thank you very much.
In an interview with the Arlington Connection earlier this year, owner Louie Alpos said he was not able to negotiate a financially feasible lease renewal with his landlord.
The diner, a fixture of a shopping plaza that also includes a Domino’s Pizza and a Giant grocery store, was open every day except Christmas Day.
