Ben's Chili Bowl ♥ ♥

Heard a lot of good things about Ben's. The chili joint has been in DC since 1958.

I heard even Obama frequents the place (that paper doll is the US President, by the way)

Anthony Bourdain gave his thumbs up, too

So I was not surprised to see a crowd

Bill Cosby's Original Chili Half Smoke
Ben's signature dish and a favorite of Bill Cosby’s since the early 60’s. 
¼ pound half-pork half-beef smoked sausage topped with mustard, onions and homemade chili

Ben's Chili Burger Sub
Two 1/4 pound all beef patties on a fresh 6” sub roll, topped with mayo, lettuce and chili



The kids dug into their Jumbo Beef Dogs before I could take photos.

Luckily, I got to the fries in time before they made a happy mess.

Honestly, I think Ben's is overrated and the chili is runny,
but I still love simple, comforting meals that hit the spot
