Ben's Chili Bowl

Ben's Chili Bowl



No visit to DC is complete without a visit to Ben's Chili Bowl.

Celebrities, locals and tourists alike have flocked to Ben's Chili Bowl for over 58 years for its flavorful and authentic food, friendly atmosphere and rich history. Try our famous Chili Half Smoke, voted Washington's signature dish. Ben's is also great for groups, large parties, meetings, and business breakfasts. We have hosted several law firms, corporations, governments and non profits over the years giving them not only great food, but a rich local DC experience. We also have 3 historians that can welcome, teach and guide your group for a personal and unique visit. For more information or to book please send an email to [email protected]. If you are looking for a different environment or something more upscale Ben's has two sister full service restaurants; Ben's Next Door and Ben's Upstairs that are happy to accommodate your group or meeting.
