The Ballston IHOP remains closed for repairs after catching fire last week, though it should be open again soon.
The restaurant, located at 935 N. Stafford Street, is currently surrounded by repair vans and has signs posted on the door informing would-be diners that it remains closed for renovation work following the fire.
However, an employee told ARLnow that IHOP could reopen as soon as the end of this week, or this weekend.
The blaze started around 2 a.m. last Wednesday (Oct. 3), with smoke seen billowing out of the roof of the restaurant. No one was hurt as a result of the fire.
