Ben's Chili Bowl
Celebrities, locals and tourists alike have flocked to Ben's Chili Bowl for over 57 years for its flavorful and authentic food, family friendly atmosphere and rich history. Family owned and operated, you'll probably see the family behind the counter at Ben's original location on U Street.
But Ben's has expanded to other convenient locations for residents and tourists. There is a Ben's Chili Bowl inside Washington Reagan National Airport (pre-security), another off Capital Hill at 1001 H ST NE DC, and you can find Ben's at Washington Nationals Park during all home baseball games.
Make sure you try Ben's Famous Chili Half Smoke, voted Washington's signature dish. Other favorites include Chili Cheese Fries, Chili Dogs, Chili Cheese Burgers, Veggie Dogs, Rice Bowls, Salad Bowls and thick milkshakes.
Got Groups? All Ben's Chili Bowl locations can take your large groups and we have special all-in priced group menus to make your visit easy for all.
No visit to DC would be complete without a visit to Ben's Chili Bowl. We are local, iconic and and have been a landmark in DC for nearly 6 decades. We look forward to serving you.
