Ben's Chili Bowl

Ben's Chili Bowl
1213 U St NW
Washington, DC



I first visited this place almost a decade ago.  This was my first time back in DC, and I knew I wanted to return to this place.


I decided to go with the signature dish.  It is also Bill Cosby's favorite dish.  It is a 1/4lb sausage made with half beef and half pork.  Then it's topped with mustard, onions, and chili.  It's all laid upon a steamed bun.  It is oh so good.  It comes with chips on the side. It costs $5.95.


G ordered the chili cheese fries.  It is topped with nacho cheese and their famous chili.  It also costs $5.95.  He also ordered some of their homemade lemonade.  It is good, but also very sweet.


The decor has a diner feel.



You can watch them cook and prepare your order while you wait.  The wait went super quick for us.


They also have breakfast, as well as vegetarian and vegan options.  You can also order large quantities of many of their items.  If you are Bill Cosby or a member of the Obama family, you can eat for free.  :)
