Ben’s Chili Bowl


May 29, 2009 Washington, DC

I was close to ‘U’ Street so I had to “Experience the taste of Ben’s Chili Bowl’ – the Washington landmark made even more famous by Barack Obama’s recent visit. I had the Ben’s Original Chili Half-Smoke (made famous in 1958) – that’s a hot dog, grilled and split and served on a warm steamed bun with mustard, onions, and chili. I also had a small vegetarian chili- also available in large size as well as by the gallon ($41.50 per gallon). I went on a off hour but even if there was a line, I think its worth a visit, at least once. And by the way, Bill Cosby and the Obama family eat for free (apparently Bill’s family needs to pay).
