First people kept
sending me emails saying I had to get to Ben's Chili
Bowl. Then when I let some folks in the DC area
know I was heading there, they warned me not to expect
listened to the first group and ignored the second.
Ben's is the sort of place that, if I was moving to DC
I'd chose a home within walking distance. A DC
institution that well deserves five grease stains.
The meal to order
is the half smoke - a sausage with a light smoke.
Topped with chili and on a bun for lunch, along side
fried egs and grits for breakfast.
You stand in line
to order then grab a seat at the counter or a table.
One of the runners will bring your order over.
Thank them with a buck or two.
