I know the historical significance of the restaurant...but let's talk about the food...their chili/other food is horrible. Since Obama went there a fewmonths back, it's now become even more of a marquee tourist stop....anyways, the best chili IMO in the DMV is Hard Times....their chili actually has flavor(Texas ftw). Who's with me on this?

Been a few times, usually when my parents visit because they LOVE the chilli dogs. Last time I had it, i threw up 5 minutes later. It doesn't taste toobad, but 6 bucks for a hot dog? Really? It's beyond overrated.

edit* F*** Fenty

Food wise Ben's is highly overrated, but that's the case with alot of these landmark food spots. The same goes for Pat and Geno's in Philly. It's more so about the historical aspect of visiting these places.

Havn't been in at least 5 years. Every time I consider going the line is out the door with white people

Rather just walk another block and hit the Taco bell/KFC

Nah, it's Anthony Kim. I think he grew up in Texas but went to OU for golf.

Used to be on point until it got all that publicity a few years ago. Pops used to take me to that joint all the time. He knew Ben back from when pops went toHoward.
