A water leak forced a Waffle House on the east side to do something they never do… close!

The restaurant near East 21st Street and North Post Road closed its doors around 1:30 Saturday morning.

The manager said they’ve fought leaks before, but never this bad.

She said it’s the first time in at least eight years the restaurant has ever had to close.

They will not reopen until the health department gives the go ahead.
