“Everyone's favorite DC chili bar!”
After 51 years, Ben’s is the same place it always has been. The counter, booths and stools are all original, the fresh homemade chili is still made with love, using the same secret recipe. Since President Obama came, the line may have gotten longer but the look and feel of Ben’s will never change.
Half-smoke loaded - loved it!! Great conversation with Virginia Ali, the owner! Singing employees added to the atmosphere!! Can't wait to go again!!
Ben's Chili Bowl has been a DC landmark in the U Street neighborhood since long before President Obama stopped by and brought it even more exposure. You usually have to wait in line for about 20 minutes to order, but trust me it's worth it. Great for late night munchies, Ben's is a must for anybody who wants to get a genuine feel for DC.
