The Boston Licensing Board today ordered the Burger King on VFW Parkway to shut for an additional two days after a police detective found it open on the first day it was supposed to be shut as two-day punishment for staying open late without permission.

Lt. Stephen Meade told the board at a hearing Tuesday that while the dining room was closed on Aug. 27 as part of the restaurant's penance, the drive-thru continued to serve customers. Meade said he checked this by getting into the drive-through lane himself and, when he got to the ordering station, was asked for his order. He said the person behind him got served as well.
