We were downtown a couple of Saturdays ago and stopped by Ben's Chili Bowl for lunch, which, if you weren't aware, is a Washington landmark.  And if you don't believe them, you can check the sign they put up outside. 


I think I'm pretty confident in saying that Ben's has the best chili dog in town.  Maybe in the whole country... with the exception of one place.  How good is the chili dog at The Varsity? Last year, I went to Atlanta for a conference.  But The KingofHearts?  He went to Atlanta for a chili dog.   

Ben's is still pretty good though. One of my kids ordered a chili dog.  The other one ordered a turkey dog... with nothing on it.  I was so embarrassed, I had to leave that one on the side of the road.
