Ben’s Chili Bowl

So, I finally went to Ben’s Chili Bowl for the first time last night. It was great, although full of hipsters. Maybe because it was just before the Wilco show (which was awsome . . .). Anyway, I took some advice from co-blogger Narni to get the chili-burger. Although the chili was good and decently spicey, the burger took awhile to cook, and the chili made the burger soggy. I think chili works better on fries and dogs. My basket of chili fries were great, and my friend got a chocolate shake which he really enjoyed. The whole experience was pleasant, and I’m definitely going to go back.

    I love that place. I’ve been going for 11 years now. It really is the perfect pre- or post- concert bite to eat. Altho the dogs do beat the burgers any day of the week.

    BCB is totally epic and totally DC, it’s truly a landmark place in this town, if we can have something like that that isn’t a monument to some dead person…

    Mmm, I passed it on my way back to the Metro after “Right-Round” last week. I wanted to stop, but I was by myself, exhausted, and smelling like an ashtray, so I just wanted to go home. Perhaps next time- chili fries so gooooood…
